Hong Kong port has made changes to their crew change rules. Now crew members can easily sign on and sign off from the Port city without restrictions. The new rules have been in force from last night, thus relieving lot of seafarers who wants to sign off or sign on. As per the rules, seafarers who wishes to join the ship has to reach Hong Kong, while ship is at berth. That means no hotel stay will be there for them until it is for genuine reasons.
