Repatriated OFs from Macau hit 4,757 since March 2020


The Philippine Consulate General in Macau Special Administrative Region (SAR) has successfully conducted its 24th repatriation flight on Tuesday, October 19,  2021.

The flight carried home 171 overseas Filipinos (OF), bringing the total number of Filipinos who benefited from the consulate’s repatriation program to 4,757 since March 2020.

Philippine Consul General to Macau SAR Porfirio M. Mayo Jr. led the Consulate’s Team at the airport to assist passengers on the flight.

He assured all Filipinos in Macau that the repatriation program of the Consulate will continue as long as it is needed. “Magpapatuloy po ang ating repatriation program habang hindi pa nagre-resume ang regular commercial flight pauwi ng Pilipinas,” said Mayo.

Consul General Mayo, likewise, assured that the Consulate continues to work towards the inclusion of Macau in the “Green List” of jurisdictions of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF).

Under Resolution 144-A, Series of 2021, the IATF will no longer require facility-based quarantine for all fully vaccinated travelers arriving in the Philippines from jurisdictions included in the “Green List” subject to presentation of a negative RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to departure from the port of country or port of origin.
