- By Chezhian Vaiz May 03, 2020


Spain orders implementation of crew changes in all ports. All seafarers irrespective of their nationality can sign on and off from any port now.

Now, Spain establishing seafarers as Key workers has paved the way for crew changes easily. Earlier UK brought seafarers as Key Workers. International maritime Organization (IMO) and many shipping bodies have requested Governments around the World to recognize seafarers from all nations as key Workers.

Spain has the highest number of COVID-19 positive cases in Europe. The pandemic has killed nearly 26,000 people and more than 2, 15,000 people have tested positive. Spain is in lockdown until May 10.
