IMO - Governments urged to bring seafarers home
The Club recently reported on calls made by various organisations including the IMO, the ILO and the ICAO for urgent action to be taken on crew changes.
There are calls for sea and air workers to be designated as key workers so that they can be relieved, and safely repatriated during the COVID-19 pandemic. The IMO has now issued a news release, again urging governments to take steps to expedite crew changes and the repatriation of seafarers. Members are directed to the Club’s Covid-19 site for additional information on Covid-19 issues.
