Multiple ports in the same country

Recommended Posts

Dear experts,

When a cruise visits multiple ports along the coastline of the same country, is is considered an exit an re-entry at each & every port ?

And is the passport stamped for exit & entry at every port?

eg) Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sir Bani Yas island, all 3 ports in UAE

When the cruise ship sails from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, is it considered an exit & re-entry ? (I am not sure if the cruise ship will go into international waters beyond 12 nautical miles from the coast of UAE, when sailing from Dubai to Abu Dhabi).

Similarly, when the cruise ship sails from Abu Dhabi to Sir Bani Yas island, is it considered an exit & re-entry ?

Thanks in advance

Completely depends upon the rules and regulations of that particular country.  In most cases in my experience, these have been considered multiple-entry situations.

 

NOTE: This anecdotal information is a single data point and should NOT be used to extrapolate into your particular situation.  The only definitive answer can come from the government of the country that you will be entering/leaving.

I will tell you when we sailed in the Greek Islands, I think we had entry and exit stamps in our passports from all of the individual islands for what that is worth.

How long ago is that?

I would believe that there are differences between EU regulations and UAE regulations.
