Authorities in the Maldives Declare Seafarers as ‘Key Workers’

As of Tuesday, January 11, 2022, Seafarers in the Maldives have been designated as ‘Key Workers’ by the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation.  
The decision came in line with international Organizations taking steps to prioritize Covid19 vaccination for seafarers, ensure safe ship crew changes and travel during the pandemic, and exempt seafarers from specific travel-related restrictions.  
Captain Adhil Rasheed was officially designated as the focal point of crew change and repatriation of seafarers to enable smooth coordination action and communication. He can be contacted on mobile +9609998700, telephone +9603343452 or on email 
The Ministry states that the new regulations will enter to force from January 13, 2022.
