The UK government recently announced on 8 June, 2020, that seafarers, including yacht crew, are now exempt from the mandatory 14-day quarantine when entering the UK.
In order to support the smooth entry of crew at the UK border, we have drafted a special guidance letter which supports their exemption from the 14-day quarantine. This letter should be signed by your Captain or Management Company and used alongside evidence of employment, such as:
- A Seafarer’s Identification Document (SID)
- Joining papers
- Seafarer’s Employment Agreement (SEA)
- Seafarer’s discharge book
- Basic training certificate
In addition, a new passenger locator form was released by the UK Government, so we advise all crew to familiarise themselves with this form before entering the UK.
