UK withdraws red list quarantine exemptions for cruise industry crew.

The British government has withdrawn quarantine exemptions from cruise industry crew that have recently travelled to “red-list” countries. Exemptions for crew will end at 04:00 hrs on 19th May.

“Any seafarer arriving in the UK from a red list country to work on a cruise ship, or who has worked on a cruise ship in a red list country in the last 10 days, will no longer be exempt from the requirement to enter managed quarantine for 10 days”, the Department for Transport (DfT) has confirmed.

Affected cruise crew will be required to book a managed quarantine package before arriving in the UK. Seafarers working on a cruise ship in an amber list country are not affected.
