The UK Club have received the attached circular from correspondents GLOBALPANDI, regarding traffic restrictions in Venezuelan ports.
As a result of the political unrest throughout the country, especially in the light of the announced arrival of humanitarian aid on 23rd February 2019, the Executive has taken measures to close maritime borders which imply restrictions for maritime traffic being enforced by the local Harbour Masters.
Members are strongly advised to monitor through their agents/correspondents local developments, in order to properly assess operational and security issues.
