SRC Application And Upgrading Process

The SRC or Seafarer’s Registration Certificate is another document an aspiring seafarer needs to accomplish before he/she can pursue a sea-based career. This document states your current capacity or the type of job you can perform on-board a vessel. SRC application and upgrading process is available at POEA head office.

Applying for an SRC is easy if you have all the necessary documents needed. Before going to POEA make sure everything is already complete to avoid delay.

Please refer below for the detailed requirements and procedures.

    Sa pagkakaalam ko sir need ang original. Request ka nalang sa agency mo na hiramin mo dahil mag-upgrade ka ng SRC. Maiintindihan naman nila siguro yun dahil kailangan mo mag upgrade.

    Usually kasi sa mga ganyang government documents dinadala ang original for verification. Sana nakatulong po.
