    While the number of seafarers impacted by the COVID-19 crew change crisis has fallen in recent months, the shipping industry is concerned that the number could be on the rise again with new variants of the virus.

    According to the the latest analysis, 200,000 seafarers are currently affected by the crew change crisis, down by about half from the height of the crisis when 400,000 needed to be repatriated. Throughout, a similar number have been waiting to join ships.

    Stakeholders warn, however, that the crisis is far from over and the number could rise again as governments reintroduce stricter border control and travel restrictions due to new COVID-19 variants making it harder for crew to transfer to and from ships.
