Following the World Health Organisation’s official declaration that Sierra Leone is now free of the Ebola virus transmission from 7 November, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore has updated the required measures to prevent the introduction of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) into Singapore.

As advised in the Port Marine Circular No.13 of 2015 dated today (11 November), arriving vessels that have been to the Ebola affected countries (i.e. Guinea) in the past 21 days are required to submit the Maritime Declaration of Health Form to the National Environment Agency (Port Health Office).
