Tariffs > Vessels Passing In Transit > Sanitary Dues
Calculation of Sanitary Dues
is as follows:
0,3315 x US Dollar daily
buying rate x vessel’s NT
* Transit vessel sanitary dues paid by the vessel for which transit nature is changed shall be completed to the amount of free vessel sanitary due.
* If transit vessels returns from the direction they went within six months as transit and submit due receipt or other document during their entry into Turkish straits, transit sanitary due is not collected again. However, if the vessels which are obliged to submit due receipt or other documents fail to submit such then it is mandatory to collect transit vessel sanitary due again. In this case, an additional return right is achieved with the receipt of repayment of such fee.
sanitary due shall be paid not later than within three working days from the
date of passage from straits.
