Seaman's Book Requirements for New Applicants

To go on board you need a SIRB (Seaman’s Identification Record Book) or Seaman's Book. We Filipinos can get our Seaman's Book at the MARINA (Maritime Industry Authority)office.


I've been to MARINA a while ago. So I got their latest requirements for the seaman's book. It's different from the requirements listed in the official website of MARINA-8.

Here's the requirements taken from their website:


But when I go to MARINA, here's the exact requirements for new applicants:
  1. Duly filled-up application form (you can get this at MARINA)
  2. NBI Clearance - Visa Seaman
  3. NSO authenticated Birth Certificate
  4. BSTC (Basic Safety Training Certificate)
  5. Transcript of Records

You should xerox the requirements earlier before going to MARINA. The processing fee is P 990.00 and you can get the seaman's book after 1 month. If you want a rush SIRB, you will pay P 1, 670.00. 

If you still don't have any shipping companies or agencies you can check the list of shipping agencies here.

    2. Seaman book is the Identity and Record book of the person who is sailing on ships or anyhow related with the marine industry. This book is issued to the candidate after the successful training of the seafarer course that is STCW, Pre Sea, GP Rating.

      It is issued for various flag:

      Dominica, Belize, Panama, Bahamas, Manila, Liberia etc.

      I know this because for years I have been into this business.

      Any querie related to seaman book or any other seafarer licence please feel to write me.

  22. Needless to say, additionally, there are occupations of which pay well. Being an engineering is among the most most effective careers currently. It is good well and its is more enjoyable in comparison to becoming a health practitioner or being a legal professional. This is the very reason why many individuals would prefer to become an engineer. Check This Out for more information.
