The Coast Guard announced in a Federal Register Notice that it will impose conditions of entry on vessels arriving from ports in the Republic of Seychelles. Conditions of entry are intended to protect the United States from vessels arriving from countries that have been found to have deficient anti-terrorism port measures in place.
Beginning April 12, 2019, the conditions of entry shown in Table 1 will apply to any vessel that visited a port in the Republic of Seychelles in its last five port calls.
View the Federal Register Notice for more details. For further information about this document, call or email Ezekiel Lyons, International Port Security Evaluation Division, United States Coast Guard, at 202-372-1296 or Ezekiel.J.Lyons@uscg.mil.
