Macau’s Public Security Police Force reported 21,573 visitor arrivals into Macau on Tuesday, an 82.7% year-on-year decline.
The figures show little variation from previous days, with 21,500 having arrived the previous day – just shy of Saturday’s peak of 22,116.
Tuesday’s visitor numbers, published by the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO), take the total number of visitor arrivals over the first six days to 120,165, down from 906,100 over the same period in 2019.
The number of visitors from mainland China so far has fallen 84.8% to 112,433.
A total of 980,000 people arrived in Macau during the entire seven-day Golden Week period last year, representing an 11.5% increase over 2018 levels.
Macau’s Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau last week revealed a 90.0% year-on-year decline in gross gaming revenue in September, only slightly improved from the 94.5% decline experienced in both July and August despite IVS being reinstated for residents of Zhuhai on 12 August and for all of Guangdong Province from 26 August.
As previously reported by World Gaming Insight, analysts are predicting a GGR decline of around 70% in October amid hopes that visitation might start showing some meaningful improvement from the middle of the month.
