Macau proof of life for senior citizens
I'm a Macau senior citizen born in Portugal.
I need to present the proof of life in January each year in order to continue receiving the annual pension.
As for the time being overseas travel is not possible, please inform when can I go the China consulate in Melbourne to obtain the ''Verification Form of Pension Eligibility of People Living Abroad'' issued by China consulates: What documents do I need to present at that time?
Thanking in advance,
Jose Pais

Well, as you will enter Shanghai from Singapore and then leave for Singapore, you will need a visa for mainland China. In Hong Kong, you can enjoy visa-free policy.
