The Transport Bureau (known by its Portuguese initials DSAT) is currently accepting applications for its three-year regular quota – a scheme allowing private vehicles to drive between Macao and Hong Kong via the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB), TDM reports.

There are 2,500 places up for grabs: 2,000 will be allocated to local residents and 500 to Macao-registered companies. 

To be eligible, individuals must be a Macao permanent resident with business interests or property in Hong Kong. Companies must either also be registered in Hong Kong, or be associated with another company there.

Eligible parties are asked to apply via the DSAT’s website before the application period closes on 19 March. There is a 500 pataca fee.

The DSAT has said it will announce the results on 22 March. Each place in the quota costs 1,000 patacas and is valid for three years.

The quota scheme is jointly administered by the Macao and Hong Kong governments. Driving between the two cities via the HZMB – which opened in 2018 – takes around 45 minutes.
