Since 2016, the Seafarers’ Accomodation Scheme (SAS) has provided 6,000 subsidised hotel rooms to officers from Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) companies.
The $300,000 scheme initiated by SMOU helps shipping companies with some financial relief and ensures that the welfare of seafaring officers who have to stay in Singapore for training or when they sign on, or off a ship, are well taken care of.
Under the scheme, subsidised lodging is provided at The Seacare Hotel, Furama City Centre and Furama Riverfront.
From 2 September 2019, ibis Singapore on Bencoolen Hotel has been included as the fourth approved accommodation provider under SMOU SAS. It is located at 170 Bencoolen Street, Singapore 189657.
All CBA companies will enjoy the SAS subsidy from 1 January to 31 December 2019.
Subsidy is in the form of SAS voucher codes, valued at S$50 each for the offsetting of accomodation costs.
SAS accepts multiple voucher codes to offset room charges.
SAS vouchers are to be used at The Seacare Hotel, Furama City Centre, Furama Riverfront and ibis Singapore on Bencoolen Hotel (NEW*).
