    If you are travelling to Macau you should have:
    Your Hong Kong identity card or Hong Kong Re-entry Permit and
    For non-permanent residents, a Document of Identity for Visa Purposes or your valid travel document and A travel document valid for travel to Macau


    So if I have non-permanent ID card, i need my passport, for stamp?
    Yes.

    If you have a non-permanent ID with R (Right to land), you can just use the ID to enter Macau.

    Exactly. You get a small printout that says how long you can stay (1 year).

    No, the letter indicating your immigration status:
    A = right of abode
    R = right to land
    U = unconditonal stay
    C = conditional stay (i.e. you have a visa of some sort)

    The letter at the start of your HKID number doesn't generally indicate much except, roughly, when it was issued. For about the last 10 years the first letter has normally been R, before that it was P. FDHs are an exception: their HKIDs generally start with W. And there are one or two other special cases as well I believe.
