    23 March 2020

  • location




Due to the escalating rate of imported cases of COVID-19 into Singapore during the last few days, effective from 2359 hours local time tonight (23 March), all short-term visitors will not be allowed to enter or transit through Singapore.

With the application of the additional precautionary measures, crew and passengers on short-term visits will not be allowed to disembark in Singapore for the time being. Crew change in Singapore is also disallowed.

In the meantime, please note:

a)       Vessels are still permitted to enter Singapore port limits to carry out their intended operations such as cargo operations i.e. terminal loading, discharging, bunkering and storing of provisions/stores.

b)      Vetting inspectors and shore technicians from Singapore are also permitted to attend vessels at Singapore anchorage for inspection, servicing or repair of equipment on board but this is subjected to their own discretion in view of the current global health situation.
