Macao registered over 21,000 arrivals on Wednesday after tourism officials extended the nucleic acid test’s (NAT) validity and launched a targeted e-marketing drive.

The NAT’s validity was changed from 48 hours to seven days on 25 August, and visitor numbers picked up immediately.

A Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) statement noted that the city recorded over 21,000 visitor arrivals on 25 August, which marks a rebound of a single-day record to 20,000 since Macao confirmed a Delta variant four-member family cluster on 3 August and tightened its measures against the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The statement said that the MGTO is actively promoting public awareness of the extension of the NAT’s validity period via its official accounts on WeChat, Weibo, Xiaohongshu, Douyin and other platforms, The Macau Post Daily reported.
