6. Departure via Hong Kong

Representatives who will depart via Hong Kong will be taken to the Macao Jetfoil Terminal. The Macao Jetfoil Terminal is about 20 minutes drive from the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Upon arrival at the Jetfoil Terminal, tickets can be purchased on the second floor at a cost of MOP 144 of US$ 18 for first class and MOP 133 or US$ 17 for economy class. Tickets can also be purchased from the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

After purchasing the ticket and paying the departure tax, passengers should proceed to the Immigration area. The completed departure card will be collected at this point. Seat assignments on the jetfoil will be allocated when passengers pass through the departure gate. Passengers should be in the Macao Ferry Terminal at least one hour before their scheduled departure. Staff from the Department of Health will be available to assist the representatives at the terminal.

Trolleys are not available at the Macao Jetfoil Terminal. It is therefore recommended that baggage with wheels be used. The passenger arrival/departure card for Hong Kong will be distributed during the one hour ride to Hong Kong and the card should be completed before arrival in Hong Kong to avoid delay at the Immigration area. Porters are available on request and baggage can be checked in beside the ticket office.

After docking in Hong Kong at Shun Tak Centre, passengers should proceed to Level 3 by escalator or elevator to go through Immigration. There are no porters or trolleys available at the terminal. Processing time through Immigration in Hong Kong will take about 20 minutes and ferry tickets must be presented.

It is advisable to change money into Hong Kong dollars while in Macao. There are money changers at the Jetfoil Terminal in Hong Kong which are located in the first corridor on the right side when exiting the Customs area. There is a surcharge of HK$ 50 or US$ 6 when changing money at the bank in Hong Kong.

To go to the airport or to town from the Jetfoil Terminal, passengers should go to Level 1 by elevator or escalator. There are two taxi stands; the one near the curb is for Kowloon side only and the one further away is for Hong Kong Island. Taxis to Hong Kong Island cost about HK$90 or US$ 12 plus HK$ 5 or US$ 0.65 per piece of luggage placed in the trunk.

If proceeding directly to the Chek Lap Kok Airport from the Jetfoil Terminal, passengers can take a taxi to the Airport Rail Link Terminal which is about 5 minutes from the Jetfoil Terminal. Passengers can check in for their flights at the Airport Rail Link Terminal and thereafter purchase their train tickets and proceed to the train. Trains for the airport depart every 10 minutes and the cost of the train ticket is HK$ 70. Travel time to the airport by train is about 30 minutes.
