BELIZE FLAG

As Deputy Registrars for the Belize flag in the Middle East, TIRM is able to process requests centrally and therefore provide a very quick turnaround for all requests as well as support local owners and agents directly.

The processing time for endorsements and seaman books is usually the same day on complete submission of required documents. If applying from outside the UAE such as India or Oman we normally request an additional day to allow for the courier time.

All applications can be submitted via email to belize@tirm.me and our usual operating procedure is to process the application and forward a scanned copy of the book and then arrange collection or delivery.

The general requirements for officer endorsements are as follows:
  • Colour photo
  • Valid passport copy
  • Certificate of Competency (COC)
  • Any supporting STCW certificates and copy of CDC
  • Verification of current Certificate of Competency
The general requirements for rating applications are as follows:
  • Colour photo
  • Valid passport copy
  • ILO Medical or equivalent
  • Certificate of Competency (COC) (in the case of Watchkeeping holders)
  • Any supporting STCW certificates and copy of CDC

The issuance of Marine Technician books for non-permanent crew is very useful especially in this region due to the high turn-around time of crew on rigs.

As usual for a more detailed view of requirements for various ranks please visit the Application Forms page and download a copy of our Seafarers General Requirements, thank you.
