Amendments to crew change regulations

08 Jun 2022 / South Korea

New regulations for crew changes come into force in South Korea from today (8 June).

Off-signers no longer need to undergo a PCR test before disembarking. Instead they must take the test within 1 day of disembarking in Korea. Any positive result must be reported to the authorities and the individual must undergo quarantine, to be completed before leaving Korea.

Visa is no longer required for crew. On-signers with a valid seaman’s book can enter and sail from Korea with EDI submission.

7-days quarantine is no longer required for on- and off-signers.
