– During the validity period of the temporary residency, applicants are required to maintain their legal status which is deemed crucial when the temporary residency approval was granted. If an applicant’s legal status has changed or terminated, or his/her identity status has been changed, this applicant must notify IPIM within 30 days from the change(s) and/or termination(s) take(s) place. Failing to fulfill the obligation to notify IPIM without reasonable explanation may result in revocation of temporary residency (please refer to section (7) of Important notes about temporary residency applications in point 6 of the Temporary Residency Application Guidelines).

Q55. 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 (please refer to section (7) and section (11) of Important notes about temporary residency applications in Point 6 of the Temporary Residency Application Guidelines).
