Crew Flying In

Hi Mates,
Does anybody know of restrictions on crew flying in to join
boats departing for Europe or the US from the Caribbean.
I have the opportunity to crew from Antigua to the UK
Or USVI to South Carolina (US)
Letís not get into the weeds about going or staying.
Iím in search of information about arriving by air then departing by
boat. Purchasing a one way ticket in, and a captains letter stating
expected departure date and vessel.
There will be a 14 day quarantine aboard each vessel before departure.
Iím a US citizen and have relatives in the UK.
Experienced sailor.
Any info or links greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Neil

You need a crew contract

The boat should supply this

This is the contract

Re: Crew Flying In

Thanks for the Info Slug,
I have departed from the UK many times but never arrived there by boat.
I have gotten plenty of Captains letters to explain one way tickets.
However my central question was about Covid 19 restrictions in place
and how they would interfere with Flying In to join a departing vessel.
Thanx again for the info you did point me to,
I was unaware of this document.
Cheers
Neil

Re: Crew Flying In

As of April 3 2020, there are fifteen confirmed cases of coronavirus in Antigua and Barbuda.
Effective March 12, 2020, travel advisories were issued denying entry to any foreign national (including passengers and crew) who has travelled to China, Italy, Iran, Japan, Korea and Singapore the past twenty-eight (28) days.
As of March 19, 2020 the Government of Antigua and Barbuda has updated it’s travel advisory to deny entry to persons who have traveled to France and Germany. However, citizens of Antigua and Barbuda as well as resident diplomats will be allowed entry.
The Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda, decided on March 25, 2020 to close the V.C. Bird International airport to all incoming commercial traffic, commencing midnight Thursday March 26, 2020, thereby ending the possibility of flights from the customary North American and European tourism source markets. This decision expands the announced ban on citizens from several identified countries.

Re: Crew Flying In

This a good site to see airline/airportbrestrictions worldwide. It can sometimes appear a little more restrictive than reality on the ground.
