djibouti port


Djibouti Port requires a security company to apply for a license prior to entering the port with an armed security team embarked. This can be done on an individual transit basis at a cost of $5,000 per visit, or the company can buy a monthly license which allows unlimited visits to Djibouti Port.

MAST holds a monthly Djibouti license; this means we are extremely competitive for transits visiting this port.
