According to the new rules, all crew must remain on board while the vessel is in port. Crew change is allowed for country residents only.
Off-signers are subject to quarantine/self-isolation measures for 14 days in the port/city of arrival. Crew members who are not residents of the port/city of arrival are accommodated in special observatory units before travelling home cities.
