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

 *    If transit nature of a vessel exercising transit return right is changed, then it shall pay full free vessel sanitary due.

*    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.

 *    Transit sanitary due shall be paid not later than within three working days from the date of passage from straits.
