Updates about the New Immigration and Health Rules

We are very pleased to advise that the local Chief of Police Immigration in Pernambuco State (RECIFE and SUAPE ports) informed last Friday that their head office in Brasilia has ordered:

1) Suspension of judgement of all defences submitted for Deeds of Infringements until new instructions are issued;

2) No Deeds of Infringement regarding the ILO Convention to be issued against ships calling Recife and Suape until further instructions.

Although he did not mention anything about cancellation of the deeds, this is a very positive step towards a satisfactory resolution for this problem.
