As this only concerns only arrivals in Greece, any off-signing crewmember can sign off as long as there is a flight on the same day direct to their home country with no deviations, and the vessel is still in the area. In cases when an off-signer will not be relieved/replaced, they should not be counted as the vessel's Minimum Safe Manning.
This is an ongoing situation, subject to possible change by the Authorities. The next fresh announcements are expected on 1 July.
