    Once you have ordered the service, your employee will be booked for a health check-up. The time is communicated in an email to your employee and to you as the orderer. The employee shall include a certificate/prescription of any corrective glass/lenses' strength issued by an optician or ophthalmologist.

  2. Health check-up
    Full check-up includes: health declaration, general examination, eye examination, hearing examination, examination of possible occurrence of tuberculosis.

  3. Manila certificate and serviceability assessment

The assessment of service is based on the physician's assessment that the employee does not have a disease that is likely to present a danger to the health or safety of the others on board. The person shall not have any disease likely to be aggravated by, or render him or her incompetent for, service at sea. The employee shall also meet the visual and hearing requirements that apply to the intended service.
