Filipino seafarers are deployed to different parts of the world, such as Europe, Middle East, Persian Gulf and to the United States. For ships that enter the United States’ territorial waters and/or ports, the crew member will not need a visa if he/she stays on board for up to a limited number of days. However, there are situations where a visa will be required. These instances include staying over the allowed limited time period, or when a crewmember wishes to de-board the vessel, or in certain emergency situations, or when it is necessary to fly to the United States to join a vessel.

This seaman’s visa falls under the non-immigrant visa category and the holder of such visa generally cannot change his or her status while in the United States. To apply for the visa, a personal interview at the U.S. Embassy is required in addition to the requisite forms and photos and also the supporting original documents listed below: (List is not exhaustive).

The new dormitory offers 90 single beds and two rooms for couples. It was opened in early June and very quickly filled to capacity.

Procedures for Checking In
Members need to present their reservation slip and AMOSUP ID and/or Seaman’s Book at the counter for issuance of an application form which they need to fill out.
They then proceed to the building administrator for approval of their application form.
Members then go back to the counter for issuance of bed assignments including bedsheets, towels and pillow cases.
Members coming from destinations abroad can check in anytime provided they present their AMOSUP ID and seaman’s book.
