What is a Seaman's Book?

We assist you in processing a Panama Seaman book in the shortest possible time.

A Seaman Book is a continuous record of a seaman’s service. This document certifies that the person holding is a seaman as per The International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watch keeping for Seafarers (STCW), 1978, as amended 1995 and 2010.

Every seafarer must carry this document while on board, which is also an official and legal record of his sea experience. The master of the vessel signs the document each time a seaman is signed off from the vessel certifying his experience on board. This is one of the most important document while a seaman is travelling on board. Remember when a person hold this document, he/she is called a ‘Seaman’Passport, STCW-2010 certification and a Seaman Book are considered essential travel documents for Seafarers.

It is important to note that the Seaman Book is a mandatory document, for any port-of-entry that require a crew transit visa.
