Like many in our industry, SMT Shipping has spent these past months working diligently to facilitate crew changes for our seafarers. SMT’s Crewing and Travel Department works closely to monitor the constantly changing information related to national border closures, visa restrictions, and flight availability. SMT will use this webpage to provide our seafarers and their families with the latest information regarding COVID-19 and its impact on our crews.
