Yachts passing through the Gulf of Aden or the Red Sea have been alerted that navigation in Yemen’s territorial waters has been banned. Ships are not allowed into Yemen unless inspected and approved by Saudi-led coalition forces, according to a security advisory.

The ban was put in place April 11. The Baltic and International Maritime Council has advised all vessels to transit the area at least 12 nautical miles outside Yemeni territorial waters, when possible.
