Seafarers Welcome

The Department Of Seafarers Operations receives and analyses documentation from seafarers, ship-owners, international and national agencies for the issuance of Panama endorsements and seaman’s books.
We comply with the amended STCW'78 Convention and the Maritime Labor Convention of 2006, as well as national regulations, promoting the safety of human life at sea, maritime protection and maritime environment.
We strengthen our human resources by promoting the continuous improvement of our quality management system, guiding them towards a culture of services that seeks the satisfaction of our customers.
The General Directorate of Seafarers has implemented the Seafarer’s Automated Application System (SAA) specifically designed to submit complete and well documented STCW compliant seafarer’s application. This tool allows greater operational flexibility for ship managers and shipowners in saving time, money and personnel resource
