COVID-19 Seafarer Letter Download

As the current Covid-19 situation continues to unfold, our top priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our colleagues, both on shore and at sea, as well as ensuring we continue to provide flawless service delivery to our customers.

In response to calls by two United Nations bodies, the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO), who along with the European Commission and an alliance of leading maritime companies, seafarers can now be issued with certificates officially recognizing them as key workers and granted exemptions from travel restrictions so they can join and leave their ships and return home without impediment, all the while complying with the proper medical screenings.

The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) and the International Transport Workers' federation (ITF) have jointly produced the special facilitation certificate template and sent them to shipping HR managers, personnel manning and vessel masters.

The certificates will need to be on a company letterhead with required details such as:

  • the seafarer's name
  • passport number
  • seafarer book number and identity document numbers
  • as well as employer and ship details
