From IGP&I
With reference to the ARIANA (IMO no: 9500132) where crew are waiting on outstanding wages to be paid and have requested repatriation, I have liaised with Skuld, who are the registered insurers of the vessel. Skuld have informed me that their member has confirmed outstanding wages have now been paid and they have documentation confirming the situation. Skuld have also reported that their member has informed them the ARIANA is expected to complete discharge at Port Sudan in a week’s time. The ARIANA will then sail towards Fujairah. Subject to Covid-19 regulations in UAE, it is hoped repatriation can take place at Fujairah. The UAE Visa regulations are continually being updated in response to Covid-19 protocols and it is not known if repatriation will take place from Fujairah. If, however, crew are unable to sign off here, the ARIANA will deviate to Karachi where all crew can sign off and new crew can sign on.
Skuld will follow up progress with the member after discharge at Port Sudan to confirm the repatriation plan and I will update accordingly.
