Marine Security Bulletin - Global Port Restrictions Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Liberian Registry recognizes that many ports that Liberian flagged vessels call may have imposed a wide array of conditions or restrictions related to COVID-19. These measures are being implemented to prevent further exposure and spread of the COVID-19 to the local port area and seafarers. As the COVID-19 spreads, it puts more pressure on the global economy, trade and the shipping industry.  Wilhelmsen Ship Agency has developed a Coronavirus - Global Port Restrictions Map, which identifies countries and ports around the world and any conditions and restrictions that have been implemented.  The map with links to this information is available through the following link:


Ship Owners and Operators are encouraged to inform their Masters of the above and use the information together with other data as deemed appropriate when assessing risks to ships and personnel, in accordance with their Safety Management System.
