Relaxation of crew change rules

11 Nov 2021 / Sri Lanka

There has been some further relaxation of the regulations governing crew changes in Sri Lanka.

Signing on/off crew who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated crew no longer need to be quarantined for seven days at the Isolation Centre (IC). Instead, upon receipt of a Day 1 Negative PCR test result, they can be released from the IC to travel directly to the airport/seaport to board a ship or to travel another country via airport through commercial flights.
