The IMO have issued MSC/Circ. 1030 in 2002 and its is still valid confirmed by IMO February 2017, however, for your information and guidance a new STCW.7 Circular that was approved by the Human Element, Training and Watch keeping Sub-Committee at its 4th session (HTW 4) 2017 that provides guidance with regard to CoC’s.  This new STCW.7 Circular also takes into account the guidance in MSC/Circ.1030. - This is to prevent any misunderstanding of validation and approval of CoC’s and CeC’s according to the STCW regulations during PSC’s.

We suggest that you download these documents from IMO:

MSC/Circ. 1030 issued in 2002

STCW.7 Circular

You can download samples of covering letters from DMA and MCA. We strongly suggest that you get the same letters from the place which issued your CoC and CeC.

Advice to all sailors

Seamen's churches are to be found all over the world. Google to find one at your next destination. They often can arrange a visit to your vessel, arrange events and tours. They know the local area and can help you with many issues.

They are open to all sailors no matter where you are from or if you have a religion.

Our best bits of advice

Before you travel, be sure to explore your destination on Google Earth. Also search for cultural, festivals, trade shows, etc. events on the web.

Download maps to your phone. Add places you want to see, then it's easy to find your way around :-)

Remember that if you buy tickets, etc., check the website on Trustpilot before making your purchase. If necessary, click here: Trustpilot

Contact your insurance company and check if you need an extra car, luggage or travel insurance.

This is how the blue EU health insurance card works

Works only in the EU -

Note that -

Turkey is not a member of the EU

The card only covers if the doctor, dentist or hospital is affiliated with the public health insurance in the country.

If you are treated at a private hospital on your holiday, you can subsequently apply for a refund from your public healthcare agency. Remember that applying for a refund is not the same as getting a refund. When it comes to paying for home transportation, the bill is yours if you do not have travel insurance.

If you only travel with the blue health insurance, you may end up having to pay a lot of money if you have to pay for treatment in private hospitals and prescription medicine, as well as, in the worst case, home transport.

Important - Warning

Before traveling, make sure you know the rules and laws of the places you go. This also applies if you make a stop on your trip. Eg. If you are stopped at Dubai airport and have consumed a glass of wine on the airplane, you may end up in prison. Some countries allow the consumption of hash oil or the like. This can mean that THC can be detected in your urine or blood up to 8 weeks after consumption, this can result in years of imprisonment in some countries. Remember some countries have the death penalty for consuming or possessing illegal drugs. Some drugs in your country might be considered illegal drugs in other countries - Note that rules and laws changes now and then. In some countries, you may receive a prison sentence if you bring headache pills, be special aware if you are going to Egypt and or Thailand. Eg. requires the UAE to register your medication on a special website before arriving in the country. What can you do before your trip? Contact the country's embassies to which you will be traveling well in advance and ask for anything you can think of. Among other things about medicine, religious laws/conditions you have to take into account, drinking alcohol is legal, etc. Contact by email or letter so you have a written answer in case of doubt. Keep in mind that even in the United States, some states have tight laws that may surprise you. In some places, kissing on the street is forbidden. In Venice, Italy, snacks are not allowed on the bridges or on the stairs to the city's monuments or dip their toes in the many canals. Rome in Italy has adopted rules to ensure that tourists behave properly. Here it is forbidden to jump in fountains, to eat ugly at monuments and to pull trunks downstairs at historic buildings. Remember when traveling you are a guest in the country you are traveling to. Enjoy, remember your a guest and avoid problems.
