Singapore had suspended crew changes during the COVID-19 pandemic, amid a heightened risk of imported cases resulting in increasing infections within the country. The suspension is being lifted for those crew members that have completed their work contract on the ships and no further extension of the contract on board is offered. A crew change may also be permitted if any of the crew members is found to be medically unfit to perform tasks on the vessels or for compassionate reasons, such as the death of a family member, necessitating the crew member to catch a flight out of Singapore.
