Any foreign vessels calling our ports for the purposes of conducting dry docking and/alongside-repairs anywhere in our ports will be required to first self-quarantine at a suitable anchorage for at least 14 days. Time spent sailing from the previous port of call to our port can be taken into account in reducing the quarantine period at anchorage. Compliance with this self-quarantine requirement will be pre-requisite prior to any relevant vessels being given port clearance to come through into the ports.

Any foreign vessel calling our ports and intending to undergo repairs at anchorage will be required to first self-quarantine at a suitable anchorage for at least 14 days before any shore-based repair crews will be allowed to board that vessel. Time spent sailing from the previous port of call to our port can be taken into account in reducing the quarantine period at anchorage.
