Suez and Panama Canal

It is basically not possible to embark or disembark in the Suez and Panama Canal.

All travelers passing through the Suez or Panama Canal as passengers on a cargo ship have to provide a valid certificate of yellow fever vaccination (see also “Travel documents”).

This vaccination is required by the canal authorities. Although according to WHO these vaccinations are unnecessary, other regulations apply here for cargo vessel passengers. A passenger without a vaccination certificate may be excluded from the voyage.

It may be necessary to put passengers as crew members on the crew list. Passengers must follow the Captain’s instructions.
