Quarantine & emergency measures

22 Mar 2020 / Argentina

The Argentine Pilotage Chamber has advised that, from 0000 hours on 24 March, all vessels proceeding from Brazil and Chile must comply with a 14-day corresponding quarantine period as established by the National Government along with Sanitary Authorities.

Ports in Brazil & Chile are considered as affected areas with exponential risks to spread Covid-19.

This will cause delays/logistic changes in line-ups/commercial drawbacks depending on vessels’ last known port of departure prior to entering Argentine jurisdiction.
