Each MISL voyage is defined as the entry into the US EEZ for a period of up to 30 days. The voyage will terminate on the earlier of expiry of the 30 day period or departure from the EEZ. On expiry of the 30 day period, in the event that the vessel is still in the US EEZ, a new voyage will be deemed to commence. The number of ports visited within the 30 day period is not pertinent for the purposes of this definition.
Any vessel that discharges at LOOP and then proceeds into port(s) is not considered to have performed a LOOP voyage.
A vessel can go into US waters for 30 days and call multiple ports for loading/discharging and that is ONE call. If the vessel stays beyond 30 days, a second voyage is deemed commenced and if it is still continuously in US waters for another 30 days, a third is deemed commenced and so on until it eventually leaves US waters.
