I have planned a 5-day stay in Macau two weeks from now. I have already booked and paid for my hotel for the entire stay and have return air tickets for my partner and myself. Based on my passport, I have to complete a visa-on-arrival process at the airport. In it, it asks for proof of sufficient funds (MOP5,000).
Is this a must?
Is it based on how long we'll be there, or for any period of stay?
If you're there for 1 day or 30 days, is it still 5,000?
Could you have less for a shorter stay?
How do they verify this?
Do you have to carry it in cash?
What would happen if I don't have the required amount on me?
Would I be refused entry for not having the required amount?
Also, I'm on a Temporary Residency Visa (until 2022) in China which is a visa-exempt country.
Would I qualify as a Chinese Resident, or is that just for people with Permanent Residency Permits?
