Here is a list of MARINA Regional Offices and Satellite Branches where you can process your Seaman’s Book, Seafarer’s Identity Document (SID) and Certificate of Proficiency (COP).
Knowing the nearest MARINA Office in your area provides great advantage. You don’t have to face the inconvenience of joining the huge wave of seafarers in the central office.
Provincial branches prove to be better than the main branch when it comes to efficiency, speed and service quality.

MARINA Satellite Offices in Manila
Aside from MARINA Central Office, Manila has four Satellite Branches which process COP, COC and/ or SIRB.
- SM City Manila
- SM Mall of Asia (MOA)
- POEA Central Office Ortigas
- Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX), 8344 E3, Parañaque, Metro Manila.
Previously, MARINA SM Bacoor opened and started processing certificates and Seaman’s Book. But as of this writing, they are no longer on the list upon conducting further research.
MARINA PITX office is the newest branch added in their list. As of this writing, there are lot of good feedbacks from fellow seafarers who processed their SRB, SID, and STCW-related documents. Other MARINA services will eventually follow.
Walk- in or Online?
Many seafarers prefer walk-in application because it’s much faster than using MARINA’s online platform, MISMO.
As per information from my friends and directly from MARINA’s regional offices, some still entertain walk-in applicants for seaman’s book application. However, MARINA POEA Satellite Office no longer accepts walk-in processing of SIRB starting August 13, 2019.
All COP and COC processing to any of their branches/ offices require online appointment. You must be able to familiarize yourself with the MARINA Integrated Seafarers Management Online System or MISMO.
For SIRB application, here are the branches and offices that still accepts walk-in applicants.
SID/ SRB Walk-in Application
Online application usually takes 3 to four hours from the time of your final evaluation. Walk-in on the other hand, takes 4 hours to one business day.
All of MARINA’s Offices in Manila caters walk in application. You only need to present the required documents when applying for Seaman’s book or SID. However, there’s a limit of of applicants at 300 per day.
This information may change without prior notice. Kindly communicate with the respective branches you’re planning to go with.
Before, most of the regional branches accept walk-in application. But they are slowly transitioning to the online system so its better to ask them before going there.
May the winds be on your favor.
