BIMCO helps members navigate measures affecting crew change in the wake of the war in Ukraine. While sanctions have restricted airborne crew change and Russian ships are banned from ports in a number of countries, Ukrainian citizens have been given visa exemptions by many countries. These exemptions provide much-needed flexibility.
This BIMCO COVID 19 weekly report for the week ending 25 March covers the International Maritime Organization (IMO), Azerbaijan, China, Panama, Russia, Ukraine, new IMO crew change national focal point of contact, and the latest from the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Every week, BIMCO summarises measures imposed by governments for sea transport, including for crew change, as well as updates from United Nations bodies such as the IMO, WHO and the ILO.
