The crew of foreign shipping and fishing vessels are once again permitted to disembark during their vessel’s stay in a Faroese port. This permission is reinstated to allow crew to unload, carry out routine vessel maintenance and other such activities directly related to the vessel.
Foreign crew members must stay in the immediate vicinity of the vessel and are not allowed to leave the harbour area. This means that they are not permitted to go shopping, run errands, or go for a walk.
If a crew member is a citizen of an open country, he or she can take a COVID-19 test, as everyone else arriving in the Faroe Islands is required to do. If the results are negative, the crew member can leave the harbour area.
