Portuguese Consulate General in Macau.

There are 13 consular missions in Macau, of which 4 are Consulates-General and 9 are Honorary Consuls.[1]

50 Consulates-General and 7 Honorary Consulates in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region are also accredited to Macau. Of the 9 Honorary Consulates in Macau, 2 are subordinate to Consulates-General in Hong Kong.

The Honorary Consulate of Portugal in Hong Kong is subordinate to the Consulate-General of Portugal in Macau.


During the Second World War, when Macau was under Portuguese rule, there was a British Consul, John Pownall Reeves, who served between June 1941 and August 1946.[2] He remained there following the fall of British-ruled Hong Kong to the Japanese, as Portugal was neutral, helping 9000 British subjects who had become refugees from Japanese-occupied colony.[3]

The British Consulate, which also operated a Hong Kong Government Permit Office, was maintained in Macau until 1967, when, following political unrest the previous December, it was targeted by pro-Communist demonstrators who attempted to make the Consul, Norman Ions, repeat anti-British and anti-Portuguese slogans, before it was evacuated and closed.[4]
