Non-compliance of crew change requirements

18 Apr 2022 / Singapore

Since 1 April 2022, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore has seen several non-compliance of crew change requirements specifically on crew vaccination status.

Several agencies had failed to ensure the crew vaccination status comply with the ICA-Safe Travel office’s type approved vaccine. Those vaccinated crew with MOH non-approved vaccines arrived at the Changi airport without meeting ICA & MPA requirements.

The list of approved vaccines is available at

In view of the non-compliance, several agencies had been temporarily suspended and not allowed to apply for non-vaccinated crew change during the suspension period until appropriate corrective/preventive measures put in place.
