As a courtesy to our audience, Maritime Commons will provide a daily compilation of nationally-relevant Federal Register Notices.

Please note, the Coast Guard cannot respond to comments on these notices outside of the Federal Register.

Conditions of entry are imposed on vessels arriving in U.S. waters from foreign ports that do not maintain effective anti-terrorism measures.

In 2012, the Coast Guard announced the imposition of conditions of entry on vessels arriving from all ports in Yemen, except for the Ash Shihr Terminal, the Port of Hodeidah, and the Balhalf LNG Terminal.

Today, the Coast Guard announces that conditions of entry will be imposed on vessels arriving from the Ash Shihr Terminal and the Port of Hodeidah. The 2012 exception remains in place for vessels arriving from the Balhalf LNG Terminal.

The policy announced in this notice will become effective April 8, 2015.
