Summary

Sure, MARINA may have grown into an agency with a hand on many things, but one thing is for sure—it’s main goal to keep the Philippine maritime business at par with international maritime standards on Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping for Seafarers remains a priority.

In the course of the delivery of its services to the grassroots level, MARINA has transitioned to using online service via its new online platform, the MARINA Integrated Seafarers Management Online (MISMO) System. However, being a new platform, many seafarers prefer to personally visit any of the MARINA Offices listed above. Though some still entertain walk-in applicants, it’s always best to communicate with the respective branches you’re planning to go to first and ask to avoid wasting time, money, and effort.
