Port operations during Feast of Ramadan

04 Apr 2024 / Turkey

All official institutions and banks in Turkey will be closed during the official Feast of Ramadan holiday from 12.00 hours local time on 9 April until 09:00 on 15 April.

Vessels planning to call at Turkish ports during this period should check in advance as some may suspend operations or increase fees by 50% for official services (pilotage, towage, mooring, customs). A 50% pilotage surcharge will apply for Turkish Straits between these dates.

Arrangements for spares, provisions, CTM, voyage orders, should be made in good time.
