Senegal: Tightening of Immigration and Customs Controls
Since early 2019, vessels calling in Dakar have been at an increased risk of Customs fines and/or detention for cargo shortages or overloading. Recently, Dakar’s Immigration Services require strictly that crew travel documents and seamen books are to be accurate, up-to-date and properly signed, failing which may result in criminal charges against the Master of the vessel.
The UK Club’s Correspondents, BUDD Senegal, have prepared advice which may be downloaded below, summarising and explaining the requirements on immigration and customs controls in Senegal.
Members are recommended to be guided accordingly.
