We have noticed over the past month when the season is coming to a close or yachts are preparing to leave for the Caribbean many non EU crew members are not realising that they have not correctly signed on or off their Yacht. What does this mean? When you fly into a EU country on arrival you must go with a cosignatory to Immigration and have your passport stamped so you can embark on the yacht, this stops your 90 days being consumed. If you do not do this and you consume your days, you could be classified as an illegal and when you go to the airport to fly home you can have up to a 5 year ban for entering any EU country. If you want us to come on board and make sure that you have everything order contact us at Palma@estelashipping.net or +34 971 722 532 and of course no charge for the visit.

Do you have cash on board, including that of crew and guest that exceeds 10.000€? As of this year all yachts that are coming from outside Spanish waters, on entry must declare all cash on board including that of crew and guests if it exceeds 10.000 euros. It is a simple process you would just need to send the exact amount that is on board and we can process the paperwork before you arrive. This also comes into effect if you are planning on leaving Spanish waters and have more than 10.000€ on board you will have to declare this as well. Next port a non-EU? Is necessary to obtain a Departure Clearence from the authorities. Next port EU? Departure Notice will have to be presented to the authorities. For advice on any of the above matters, please contact us on +34 971 722 532 or via email: email@example.com

Each one of us realizes the tremendous destruction and the massive and long recovery road ahead. Most of us have strong connections to the people of the Caribbean and feel a duty to act and contribute. The formation of the SuperYacht Aid Coalition made up of the industry association leaders underscores the urgent need for us ALL to get involved, in a unified way and to make sure the collective industry response makes a statement. A statement that we can do great things together, that we deeply care and are grateful to the people of the affected Caribbean Islands. And the industries collective financial contribution makes a statement that reflects the value and appreciation we have for our Caribbean Island hosts. YachtAid Global has been tapped to facilitate the yachting industries recovery efforts. It is clear that one group needs to advise all that want to get involved so we are not duplicating efforts and we maximize everyones contribution. We spend several hours a day talking to people giving real time situation reports from the islands and in all of these cases we are asking “how can we compliment your program or advise on how best to get contribute”. We should be […]
Before anything else, preparation is the key to success. We commonly say that lives are invaluable, that saving a life, any life, is worth any effort, any expense. Is it true? Every emergency is a situation in which you have no control over, and eventually it can stem from a lack of preparation. In fact fear of failure, anxiety and confusion can generate chaos and paralyze the victim’s rescue procedures. Be ready to react! Prepare yourself, your crew and your yacht to handle first-aid emergencies in a professional effective way.
