Our arrangements to ensure safety for crew, are as follows:

  • We only use hotels which are approved by Ministry of Health,
  • Our cars are sterilized before and after any use,
  • Our motorboats are sterilized before and after any use,
  • All our staff at airports, port, offices etc, use Covid-19 virus protecting equipment (facemask, washing liquid, 96% alcohol, chloral).

 

We are doing our utmost to protect all crew as from arrival to airport till embark the vessel or as from disembarkation till fly out from Egypt i.e. safest corridor possible between airport and vessel.

Furthermore, regarding covid-19 test at Egypt it's available only at government hospitals and they do same only for persons, who already has the symptoms or suspect carrier.

Some private hospital allowed to collect sample for test against 200 USD (more/less) but they also send same to government hospitals for analyze. The result normally appears in 4-5 Days.

Please revert by return with your plan for crew change.

We are in continuous contact with all authorities, and, as soon as any update, we will advise same.
