This week, the PYA is launching a new webinar for captains, crew members, yacht managers and recruiters to discuss visa and immigration in Europe.

The webinar will bring together a panel of experts from leading companies to cover key issues affecting seafarers operating in the EU.

  • Italy (Genoa, Viareggio, Sardinia & Naples): Learn from Luise Group's specialists about navigating the latest visa requirements and processes for your crew in key Italian ports.

  • Spain: BWA Yachting's experts will offer valuable information on visa regulations and efficient immigration procedures for Spain.

In this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Stay informed on the latest visa requirements and changes in policy

  • Learn best practices for smooth crew immigration processes

  • Get expert advice from leading companies in the industry

  • Ask questions and address any specific concerns you may have
