MARINA Satellite Offices in Manila
Manila has five Satellite Branches which process COP, COC and/ or SIRB.
- SM City Manila:
- SM Mall of Asia (MOA)
- POEA Central Office Ortigas
- SM City Bacoor
- Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX), 8344 E3, Parañaque, Metro Manila.
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.
SIRB 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.
- SM Bacoor
- Batangas City- MARINA REGIONAL OFFICE IV
- Tacloban City- MARINA REGIONAL OFFICE VIII
- Zamboanga City- MARINA REGIONAL OFFICE IX
- CARAGA- MARINA REGIONAL OFFICE XIII
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.
