The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has released a new circular outlining enhanced rules for crew changes in its port, making crew changes even more difficult.  While easing the home isolation requirement to 14 days from 21, on-signers now must have a negative result from a COVID-19 test (polymerase chain reaction (PCR) type) taken at a government-approved or ISO 15189-accredited testing facility at his/her originating country not more than 48 hours prior to departure for Singapore and must be certified fit-to-travel and have a negative result from an ART (Antigen Rapid Test) certified by a doctor at his/her originating country not more than 24 hours prior to departure for Singapore.
