Every visitor to Macau needs to fill out for the Immigration Department a small form entitled by "Arrival Card", that is given to each visitor before entering the territory.

This "Arrival Card" is a 12 cm x 8 cm (4.7 inches x 3.1 inches) form, is written is three languages, Chinese - Portuguese - English, and as an equal page attached that directly copies everything one writes on the first page. Officials at the border will collect the original for entry and the other form's copy is supposed to be kept by the visitor and collect by the officials at the departure of the visitor.

On the copy's back page one can read:
"Persons who remain in the Macao Special Administrative Region beyond the legal authorized period are considered as illegal immigrants and are subject to sanctions by Law. This Visa does not entitle the holder to work.

.... and also (in the languages: Chinese - Portuguese - English):
