SCA Circular No. 5/1996

Granting rebate in transit dues to ships carrying wheat and heading to Aqaba harbour.

SCA decided to grant the ships coming from regions north of the Suez Canal and carrying wheat (only) to be unloaded in the Jordanian Aqaba harbour a rebate of 10% in canal dues for both trips (loaded/in ballast).

To have the advantage of this rebate, a certificate from Aqaba harbour proving complete discharge of the shipment in the harbour should be submitted.

The ship should pay full transit dues at the day of transit till submitting the certificate mentioned in the second item.

This circular comes into force for an experimental period of six months starting from 21/9/1996.
