GRATUITIES IN ALGERIAN PORTS

Despite fresh incidents of abusive gratuities being reported by our members, we are being assured that the Algerian maritime authorities do wish to put an end to all gratuities in excess of minor presents which a master may wish to give as a friendly gesture.

Our main contact on this issue informs that the “Vessel’s Call Form” has been issued not only for Arzew but is also about to be implemented in both Bejaia and hopefully even in Skikda.

In order to monitor developments of the above-mentioned reporting system and its efficiency INTERTANKO encourages members to report their experiences from future calls in Algerian ports.  Kindly send such information by e-mail to: gunnar.knudsen@intertanko.com and relevant action will be taken.
