Quarantine requirements tightened

21 Jan 2021 / Dalian, China

Due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in Dalian, quarantine requirements have been tightened up.

The Dalian Quarantine Office has started performing COVID-19 tests for crew on vessels which have made a crew call at its last port of call or high-risk area, even if more than 14 days have passed prior to arrival in China.

At Dalian, the waiting period to commence cargo operation may be up to 24 hours, or until the test results are provided (usually about 10-12 hours).

Authorities in all Chinese ports are exercising their diligence to decide if they need to conduct a COVID test for all crew or not, based on their internal risk assessment system.
