Great difficulties bring great experiences. Seafarers are one of the most affected branches in the World because of COVID – 19. Around 2 months between April 2020 – June 2020, crew changes were not allowed to be performed at Turkish ports and straits. but now, Crew changes in transit and at port go on at full steam Since the end of June 2020. 

I. Offsigners;

  • Transfer to the airport. Crew members need to be at the airport 3 hours before the flight. If their flight company or country requires a PCR test for COVID-19, Crew members should be at the airport at least 9 hours before the flight.
  • Pcr tests at the airport for COVID-19 cost USD 40 for each Crew member, the result comes out in 6 hours.
  • Attendance until the counter opens

II. Onsigners;

  • Required documents need to be sent by vessel 12 hrs prior to changing
  • Visa payments ( if any)
  • Formalities
  • Attendance until boarding

And, we, ID Shipping Agency, have one of the most powerful, experienced, and dynamic teams who can carry out Crew changes in every condition for valuable seafarers at any Turkish shipyards, straits, and ports.
