COVID-19 Global Port Restrictions
Due to the current increase in Covid-19 cases, also the newfound imported new variant virus (from UK/South Africa), JP Government has indeed started tightened the entry procedure for visitors to JP As consulted with Immigration office on 28th Dec, regulation related on Crew on/off-signing remains unchanged at this moment, which means at this stage we can still assist them with their entry to JP via shore pass entry. HOWEVER, pls note: 1) This regulation is subjected to change again, there is a possibility to be banned prior your crew’s arrival (shall recheck on 4th Jan 1st working day after New Year Holiday) 2) In case joining crews have visited UK and South Africa in 14 days prior departure home port, their joining onboard might be refused, or extra Quarantine days required upon their arrival JP airports even in case their COVID-19 test result is negative. In this regards, if crew change is to be affected, we need travel history summary for all on-signers within 14 days prior departing home countries. 3) COVID-19 free Certificate which needs to be certified by Doctor in 72 hrs. (from sampling time till departure time from home port) is still compulsory with NO exception.
