walk-in-sirb

Before you can work in any 350 Gross Tonnage & above foreign-flagged ship or a Philippine-registered ship, you need a Seafarers Identification and Record Book (SIRB) or what is commonly known to many seafarers as ‘seaman’s book’.

Since it’s your first time to apply, take note of the following:

1.Requirements

For new applicants, bring the ORIGINAL COPY and ONE (1) PHOTOCOPY of these documents:

  • Birth Certificate on Security Paper (SECPA) or Passport
  • Valid NBI Clearance
  • Valid Basic Safety Training (BST) or Basic Training (BT) Certificate; and
  • Official Receipt of Basic Safety Training (BST) or Basic Training (BT) Course

Meanwhile, if you are a cadet and you would like to wear your shoulder board on, submit a Transcript of Records (TOR). If not available however, a certification duly sined by the college’s Registar may suffice. This will be your proof that you have been enrolled in a maritime course.

2.Payment

A regular processing costs Php 800.00 only but if you needed it ASAP apply for an expedite processing of your seamans book. It’s faster but will costs you Php 1,500.00.

3.Entitlement – If your regular application is successful, you can claim your first seaman’s book the next working day but within 4 hours only if you choosed expedite processing.

4.Office hours – Your nearest MARINA Office is open daily, from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM without noon break (Monday to Friday only).

5.Exemptions – If you plan to work onboard warships/naval vessels/naval auxiliaries or fishing vessels regardless of tonnage engaged in domestic fishing operation, you are not required to possess a SIRB.

All set to apply? Walk-in to the MARINA Main office located at 984 Parkview Plaza, Taft Avenue corner Kalaw Street Manila, Philippines or a MARINA regional office nearest to you today!

Ooops.. wait! I think if getting an online appointment first will make your seaman’s book application more convenient. Check this blogpost.
