Pre-arrival documents, crew movements & port operations

21 Apr 2020 / Denmark

Due to measures in place to control the spread of COVID-19, all ships calling at Danish ports must send their Maritime Declaration of Health prior to arrival to their agent for submission to the relevant authorities.

Crew changes are still possible. All inbound and outbound personnel need to carry documents stating their purpose of transit. This can be a letter from their employer or GAC Denmark can issue a Letter of Guarantee, if appropriate.

Shore leave is prohibited. Crew members must stay on board unless for crew change purposes or activity related to cargo/projects and waste.

All Danish ports are still operational, but operating with minimum manning, which can cause some delays. Danish pilots are still servicing both harbour and transit pilotage needs. Stevedores and warehouses are also still operating, but physical contact must be avoided.
