For vessels sailing under the Dutch flag crew members require Dutch documents.
We assist in applying for the Dutch endorsement, Certificate of proficiency and Dutch seaman’s book.

REQUEST DUTCH DOCUMENTS

certificate of proficiency

In order to work onboard a Dutch Flag tanker vessel, a foreign seafarer requires a certificate of proficiency.
The proof of competence for the service on tankers must be applied seperately from the endorsement (recognition certificate). 

The original certificate of proficiency will be issued within 9-11 working days after the application has been submitted. We will only receive an order confirmation in Dutch language once the application has been submitted.

If the original certificate of proficiency is required sooner than mentioned above, we can apply for express service to speed up the process.

dutch endorsement

The original Dutch endorsement will generally be issued within 9-11 working days after the application has been submitted. You will get a ‘Confirmation of receipt of Application’ which can be used for at least three months from the date of issuance until the original endorsement has been issued.
With this "CRA" the seafarer can already start working onboard the Dutch Flag vessel.

If the original endorsement is needed sooner than mentioned above, we can apply for express service to speed up the process.

dutch seamen’s book

The issuance of the Dutch seaman’s book generally takes 4-6 working days. 
In order to apply for the Dutch seaman's book we require a passport copy, photo passport size (digital) and the specific rank of the crewmember onboard the vessel.

If the crew member is in possession of a seaman’s book written fully in English, no Dutch seaman’s book is required.

If the original seaman's book is required sooner than mentioned above, we can apply for express service to speed up the process.
