Singapore's Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) will be giving a 50% port dues concession to passenger ships, to provide relief to ship owners and operators who have seen a drop in passenger volumes because of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) outbreak.

The concession, to be given from March 1, 2020, through August 31, 2020, will be on top of existing port dues concessions.

All regional ferries and cruise vessels with a port stay of not more than 5 days, and passenger-carrying harbour craft will qualify for the concession. It is expected to benefit over 600 cruise ships, passenger-carrying harbour craft, and regional ferries bringing total savings of more than USD 1 million in the 6-month period.

The new port dues concession for passenger ships is part of the COVID-19 relief package announced by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance Heng Swee Keat.
