Tankers also subject to 14-day quarantine

22 Mar 2020 / Mumbai, India

With immediate effect, tanker vessels arriving Mumbai after touching infected ports must complete 14 days quarantine after leaving that port. Previously, this applied only to dry bulk vessels.

Stoppages of a vessel at any port of infected countries only for bunkering purposes shall not be counted for the calculation of 14 days from port of departure.

Vessels that have arrived at Indian port after 14 days of departure from an infected port need not comply with the additional requirements.

The written permission of the Deputy Conservator is required to berth the vessels at Mumbai Port.
