Update on Qatar situation

In addition to the previous information provided about the restrictions and precautions to be taken when trading in the area, BIMCO has been informed of the following: 

The Port of Khasab in Oman, has agreed to issue port clearance to ships having difficulties going into or coming out of Qatari ports. Under normal circumstances, issuance of a port clearance at Khasab for ships calling only for the purpose of obtaining clearance is not permitted.

To do so it is important to note that the port clearance issued at the last port must show next port as Khasab, Oman.

The port has a 300 m quay with a maximum draft of 8.5 m. Clearance can be done at berth if available or if not, at anchorage. For clearance alongside, the ship must be able to berth without assistance of pilot and tugs which are not available, however, linesmen will be provided.

No crew launches are available and for anchorage clearance, officials will use available boat service for collection/delivery of documents.
