The Philippine Government has enacted ILO convention 185 finally settling the issue of crew shore leave / crew change in Brazil.

The Club’s Contact in Brazil informs us that the Philippine Government has finally signed the ILO 185 agreement. Philippine seafarers on vessels calling Brazilian ports will be free to sign on, sign off vessels, and attend shore leave within the prescription of local immigration restrictions.

This also applies to other seafarers from countries who have also signed the agreement, details of which can be found at the ILO’s website at the following address;
