Worried wife of a seafarer launches campaign to ensure zero contact in ports during coronavirus crisis - - Splash 247
More than 4,700 people have signed a petition on demanding a zero contact policy in ports around the world. The campaign was started by Mukta Kumar, the wife of a seafarer and keen Splash reader.

“As the wife of a seafarer I am used to a life of either waiting for my husband to return or bidding him goodbye. But for the first time, I am worried and helpless, for he can neither come home and nor is he safe there as his ship makes its way to Italy,” Kumar wrote in introducing the petition, going on to highlight the concern many seafarers have that Covid-19 could be brought onboard ships from people ashore, whether it be from a pilot, agent, stevedore or government official.

“Just one infection could spread rapidly as they live in closed spaces. There is no doctor, ICU or ventilator on board. They are too far away at sea to get prompt attention and every country’s medical system is already overwhelmed,” Kumar wrote in calling for a for a zero contact policy for all cargo / port operations and to ensure no one from ashore enters crew accommodation areas....

India: Family members of seafarers who held protest near CM�s residence arrested - Goa Chronicle
Family members of seafarers who are unable to return home due to lock down imposed due to COVID-19 held hunger strike near official residence of Chief Minister Pramod Sawant in the Panjim city on Wednesday.

The protesters held placards which read ‘Our Govt is dead, can’t bring our seafarers back’.

However, they were later arrested by the police.

Those who were arrested included five women from families of the seafarers who are stranded on board ships.

Before staging protest, the family members of seafarers met Chief Minister but claimed that they were not convinced by the assurances given by the Chief Minister.

According to government’s estimate there are around 7,000-8,000 seafarers stranded on board various ships.

Opposition condemned the action of the police.

BIMCO Provides Regulation Overview For Extension Of Seafarers� Certificates - Hellenic Shipping News Worldwide
In light of the preventive measures taken by ports states, making crew change and repatriation difficult, if not impossible, many flag states and administrations are taking a pragmatic approach to statutory certificates and agreements in line with IMO circular 4204, add. 5.

In light of the preventive measures taken by ports states, making crew change and repatriation difficult, if not impossible, many flag states and administrations are taking a pragmatic approach to statutory certificates and agreements in line with IMO circular 4204, add. 5.

Using publicly available sources and information provided to the secretariat, BIMCO is relaying circulars and notices outlining the formalities to extension and exceptions to statutory certificates for:

• Ships
• Seafarers

The general opinion is to recognise seafarers as essential keyworks in the supply chain, bringing food, medical equipment and other commodities across the world. For this reason, it is of uttermost importance to take a pragmatic approach.

It is not unusual for ships to have mixed nationalities onboard with seafarers subject to different administrations. For ships flying yet a different flag, the crew composition is becoming even more relevant, as original certificates and the seafarers’ employment agreements will expire.

The national administrations can only make exceptions to national certificates such as:

• Certificates of competency
• Medical fitness certificates
• Radio operator certificates
• Certificates of endorsement

If the ship is manned with foreign crew it is therefore important to make sure the underlying certificates are valid and that the flag state have made arrangements for endorsement of a potential temporary extension. Generally, flag states are showing a pragmatic approach and will in most cases extend the endorsement if the underlying certificates are extended.

IATA and ICS: Governments must facilitate crew change flights for seafarers - eTurboNews ' Trends ' Travel News
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) are jointly calling on governments to take urgent measures to facilitate crew change flights for seafarers. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, seafarers are having to extend their service onboard ships after many months at sea, unable to be replaced following long tours of duty or return home.

Shipping is vital to the maintenance of global supply chains, but the current situation is unsustainable for the safety and wellbeing of ships’ crews and the safe operation of maritime trade. Each month about 100,000 merchant seafarers need to be changed over from the ships on which they operate to ensure compliance with international maritime regulations protecting safety, health and welfare.

As a result of government-imposed travel restrictions due to COVID-19, flights to repatriate or position marine personnel are unavailable. Immigration and health screening protocols are also hampering the ability of merchant ships to conduct vitally necessary crew changes. IATA and ICS are working together to come forward with safe and pragmatic solutions that governments can implement to facilitate crew changes at certain airports....

India: Goan Seafarers to be repatriated in 3 stages - The Hindu
Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Wednesday said that the government would undertake a three-stage repatriation of Indian seafarers stranded in various countries and ships.

Hours after wives and family members of some Goan seafarers were detained for protesting outside the Chief Minister’s residence in Panaji, Dr. Sawant said to begin with, seafarers on ships in Indian waters would be allowed to disembark at Indian seaports. This would be followed by allowing those on ships in the deep seas to come by sea and disembark at various Indian ports.

Permissions for these two measures of repatriation of seafarers, the Chief Minister said, would be completed in the next three-four days and eight to 10 days, respectively. In the third phase, all those seafarers currently not on ships but stranded in various parts of the world, will be allowed to return....

India: Seafarers still at sea as government delays plan on crew changeover and repatriation from overseas - BusinessLine
Thousands of distraught Indian seafarers anxiously waiting on their ships at the outer anchorage of the country’s ports ready to disembark on completing their contracts and those stranded in similar situations in various parts of the globe due to lockdown restrictions had pinned high hopes on the government offering some relief to help reunite with their families after months at sea.

Seafarers and their families have been piling pressure on the government in the last few days to allow them to sign off from their ships while the global shipping industry has been pushing for government support to facilitate crew changeovers in the midst of the rampaging pandemic by designating seafarers as “key workers” providing an “essential service”.

While the shipping ministry and the Directorate General of Shipping (DG Shipping) have been giving the right signals to the stake holders, this has not translated into action so far.

The revised guidelines issued by the ministry of home affairs early on Wednesday morning on the do’s and dont’s during the extended lockdown period till May 3 did offer a glimmer of hope....
