GUIDANCE ON IMMIGRATION PROCESSES AND PROCEDURES IN THE MARITIME PORTS

Please take note of the email received from RCYC regarding clearing in and out.

We have all been somewhat surprised by the recent move by SA Home Affairs in enforcing existing regulations pertaining to the clearing of vessels from our various ports.

I had asked the Director to supply us all with clearer direction as to what exactly will/is required of our visiting vessels in terms of the clearing in/out processes.  As such, please find a recent guideline attached.

FYI – RCYC have now designated two permanent 24hr turnaround ‘hot berths’ which will only accommodate those vessels clearing in/out.

We’re expecting an avalanches of vessels clearing in mid to end Jan – please make sure your guests are very well aware of the requirements set out by RSA Home Affairs.
