Taipa Ferry Terminal

The Taipa Temporary Ferry Terminal (Portuguese: Terminal Marítimo Provisório da Taipa; Chinese: 氹仔臨時客運碼頭) (IATA: YFT) was located in Taipa, Macau SAR, a few meters north of the Macau International Airport. It was mainly served by Cotai Jet for services from the Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Pier, Hong Kong in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong SAR and the Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal[1] in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. It is now closed.

The ferry terminal had two berths for hydrofoil and one for ferries, and served as a port of entry into Macau, with there being passport control desks - separated into those for Macau residents, Visitors (including Hong Kong identity card holders and Mainland China visitors) and Diplomats. There was also a visa-on-arrival application office for those who require a visa to enter Macau but had not applied prior to arriving at the ferry terminal. After that, there was a customs check.

Closure[edit]

Labelled as the 'Taipa Temporary Ferry Terminal', the structure was formally closed on the 1st June 2017, and replaced by a new, permanent ferry terminal in the same location[2].

Bus connections[edit]

There is a bus stand outside the pier, as well as a taxi stand. The pier is situated very close to Macau International Airport - the cargo terminal can be seen as you walk from the berths to the arrivals hall.
