The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) on Friday (26 August) issued Port marine Circular No. 19 of 2022 which explains crew change requirements for cargo ships in the port of Singapore and applications for unvaccinated and vaccinated crew to enter the republic:
Requirements for crew change and shore leave
This circular supersedes Port Marine Circulars no. 08 and 14 of 2022.
As Singapore moves to streamline pandemic measures to living with Covid-19 as an endemic disease, MPA has aligned our crew change and shore leave requirements with the national border measures, whilst continuing to safeguard the wellbeing of seafarers entering Singapore as well as Singapore’s populace.
Since 1 Apr 2022, fully vaccinated sign on and off crew can enter Singapore under the Vaccinated Travel Framework as Short-Term Visitor (including shore leave). Applications are to be made directly to the ICA CREW system via [email protected]™. More information can be found at ICA’s website (www.ica.gov.sg/enter-transit-depart).
All non-fully vaccinated crew arriving in Singapore from 28 August 2022, 2359 hours will no longer be required to undergo a 7-day Stay Home Notice (SHN) prior to departing for Singapore. They will continue to be required to take a pre-departure test within 2 days before departure for Singapore, as well as carry a valid travel insurance for non-fully vaccinated Short-Term Visitors (STVs).
