To All V.Ships Seafarers and their Families - 11th January 2022

11th January 2022

To All V.Ships Seafarers and Families

Happy New Year to you all! We all hope that you remain safe and well in 2022.

On 3rd December 2021 I sent a letter to you outlining our Covid-19 mandatory vaccination requirements for all of you joining vessels after 15th February 2022 and this was fully supported by our V.Group Chief Executive Officer René Kofod-Olsen, in his letter to all colleagues sent on 22nd December 2021. René also highlighted the rapid and global impact of the Omicron variant and stressed the need to keep our Covid-19 barriers & safeguards in place.

Our mandatory vaccination requirement is already in place for those of you who work onboard our Leisure fleet and specific Cargo and Offshore fleets. This requirement is presently working well. For other fleets, our present records show that 74% of all seafarers joining vessels are fully vaccinated. I would like to pass my thanks to everyone who have taken the positive step of becoming fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

For everyone on leave, I strongly encourage you to become fully vaccinated before you join your next vessel, and from 15th February 2022 this will be a mandatory requirement.

In addition, when you are fully vaccinated, you are required to upload the vaccination documents via the V.Crew Connect App. I have copied the instructions on page 2 & 3 of this letter and if you have any problems, contact your local crewing team.

Many thanks to all of you and stay safe.
