Q54.I have already obtained my Macao Permanent Resident Identity Card, but my family dependents have not yet lived in the city for 7 years. During this period of time, will the change of the status of my application grounds affect the temporary residency of my family dependents?

A: If an applicant has already obtained Macao Permanent Resident Identity Card, but his/her family dependents have not lived in the city for 7 years, the applicant must maintain the legal status crucial to the approval of his/her temporary residency. Lacking valid application grounds might cause revocation of the temporary residency which has been granted to family dependents.
