Therefore, all vessels arriving to the US that visited the countries listed above during their last five port calls must take the following actions as a condition of entry into US ports:

1.Implement measures per the ship’s security plan equivalent to Security Level 2;

2. Ensure that each access point to the ship is guarded and that the guards have total visibility of the
exterior (both landside and waterside) of the vessel. Guards may be:

  • provided by the ship’s crew, however, additional crewmembers should be placed on the ship if necessary to ensure that limits on maximum hours of work are not exceeded and/or minimum hours of rest are met, or
  • provided by outside security forces approved by the ship’s master and Company Security Officer.

3. Attempt to execute a Declaration of Security;

4. Log all security actions in the ship’s security records; and

5. Report actions taken to the cognizant USCG Captain of the Port prior to arrival in the US.

Failure to properly implement these actions may result in delay or denial of entry into the United States.
