Additional Space

Vizhinjam will emerge on the world crew change map given its close proximity to the main shipping lane with least deviation. However, there are several requirements for it to develop as a permanent crew change destination like Mumbai, Goa etc. Vizhinjam needs rooms for crew, Customs, Immigration and port agents. According to the latest information, the old signal station is being upgraded, and will be handed over to Customs and Immigration departments.
