Enjoy a pleasant trip in Macao, stay in Legal Accommodation

When visiting Macao, lodge in licensed hotels or inns, do not stay in "illegal accommodation" operated without a license.

Refuse staying in illegal accommodation
"Illegal accommodation" premises usually have problems threatening fire safety, hygiene, building safety and security. For your own safety, never stay in "illegal accommodation"
When an unlicensed inn is under investigation by law enforcement authorities, occupants must cooperate to provide relevant information


Occupants refusing to cooperate shall face a fine of $3,000 patacas
Tourists declining to pay the fine within the stipulated time shall be prohibited to re-enter Macao
Occupants providing false information are liable to criminal responsibility

How to identify an illegal inn

All legal hotels, guest houses or inns have a license issued by the Macao Government Tourism Office, and the license should be placed in the accommodation premise
