According to a report from GMA News, the Pinoy crew are set to disembark from the ship right after they receive clearance from the Quarantine Bureau (BOQ).

There are about 428 Filipino crew from one of the seven ships that already disembarked over the weekend with the clearance. The others are yet to receive the same.

Commodore Armand Balilo, PCG spokesperson, said that the six other ships are also waiting for the clearance from the BOQ for their Filipino crew.

The BOQ, based on their protocol, monitors the health condition of crew members to determine if they are positive from COVID-19, which would be the basis for the bureau to issue a clearance for disembarkation.

After disembarkation, the crew would have to undergo a 14-day mandatory quarantine in their respective quarantine facilities.

As per the report, the PCG already has a ship that is monitoring the said cruise ships, which is backed up by their aerial surveillance.

They added that they expect an arrival of another cruise ship from Germany and Australia, which is currently in Indonesia to have Indonesian crew disembark.
