Security Advisories

On 12 June 2014 the United States Coast Guard (USCG) issued an updated Port Security Advisory after it had determined that the Federal Republic of Nigeria is not maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures in some of its ports. The ports in the Federal Republic of Nigeria that have been found to have effective anti-terrorism measures and therefore are exempted from taking additional security measures are listed below.

The USCG requires vessels that arrive in the United States on or after 26 June 2014, after visiting certain ports in the Federal Republic of Nigeria as one of their last five ports of call must follow the required actions as listed in paragraphs C and D of the USCG's Port Security Advisory (see link below).
