The Gongbei Port (Chinese: 拱北口岸; pinyin: Gǒngběi Kǒuàn) is an immigration and customs checkpoint located in Zhuhai of mainland China, on its border with Macao. It is operated by the Bureau of Exit and Entry Administration of the Ministry of Public Security, and the General Administration of Customs.

It is located in the Gongbei Subdistrict (jiedao) in the southeastern part of Zhuhai, and is one of two ports of entry on land between the mainland China and Macau (the other being the Lotus Bridge, connecting Hengqin, Zhuhai in mainland China with Cotai, Macau).

Immigration and customs for travellers exiting mainland China are to the east, while immigration and customs for those entering mainland China are to the west.

There is a large underground shopping mall under the plaza north of the port-of-entry building.

The counterpart in Macau, through which travellers must pass before or after Gongbei is the Portas do Cerco, operated by the Serviço de Migração of the Corpo de Polícia de Segurança Pública, and the Serviços de Alfândega.

Transport to the border[edit]

Gongbei Bus Station, a coach station, with transport to Guangzhou and other cities in Guangdong and elsewhere in China, is located within walking distance from the border crossing.

Zhuhai Railway Station, with high-speed rail service to Guangzhou South Railway Station, is located beside the border crossing.
