MARINA SID/ SRB (Seaman’s Book) Online Application 2023

by | Last updated Dec 17, 2023 | How-to Guide, Important Documents, MARINA Updates | 185 comments

Online application of MARINA’s SID/ SRB documents is now in full ahead.

With new regulations in place, our Seaman’s Book got a new upgrade. Seafarers will not be given a Seafarer’s Identification and Record Book (SIRB) starting November 2019. 

Instead, they must apply for the new Seafarer’s Record Book (SRB).

A Seafarer’s Identity Document (SID), which is different from SRB, serves as the “identification” function of our seaman’s book.

You can apply both SID and SRB online which I will show you here.

Documentary Requirements

Before starting your application journey, it is very important to complete the requirements first. This includes your working email address.

Furthermore, there are only 3 categories in applying for MARINA SID/ SRB documents. These are NEW application, RENEWAL, and RE-ISSUANCE (Lost/ Damaged/ Reprint).

Seafarers’ Record Book (SRB)

Our SRB is a standalone document that is a must-have for every seaman. Here are the requirements you need. Replacement and re-issuance have now two categories – those on board and those ashore or while on vacation.

How to Apply for MARINA SID/ SRB

Just like MISMO, the application process consists of two parts. The first one is the online appointment and the second is appearance.

Completing the online application is simple. MARINA will use the information you provided on their website for your SRB or SID.

The second part is appearance. After setting an appointment schedule, the applicant must proceed to his chosen MARINA office

They will check your requirements for authenticity and will give you your SID or SRB.

Step 1. Visit the MARINA SID/ SRB Website

First of all, head over to their web address at

A Gender Equality Disclaimer will pop up and you just have to close it to proceed.

The site is straightforward. There, you will immediately see a SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT button written in bold white with a navy blue background. Click it.

It will prompt if you have a VALID SRB. Click NO to proceed.

Another popup will come. This time, it’s about the IMPORTANT REMINDERS regarding your application. Once you understand what it says, click Continue.

A Terms and Conditions agreement for your application and the usage of their website will show up next. At the very end, click on I AGREE WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS WEBSITE.

Don’t worry about the Time Remaining countdown. If you have prepared the requirements beforehand, you will finish it in less than 10 minutes.

Important reminders before proceeding to make an online appointment of your SID/SRB.

Step 2. Enter Full Name and Email Address

Here, you have to enter your correct name, email address, and birthdate.

Make sure that they are 100% correct and free from errors because they can no longer be edited once submitted in the Online Appointment System.

Click the “I’m not a robot” Captcha.

Entering your name, middle name, surname, birthday, and email address during the start of your online appointment.

Step 3. Go to Your Registered Email Address and Look for the OTP.

The OAS System will send a One-Time Password (OTP) straight to the email address that you entered. 

Look for it and enter your 6-digit OTP in the pop-up. Remember that you are only given 5 minutes to do this. 

Sometimes, the OTP won’t arrive as quickly as it should even if you check the Spam Folders. Click on Resend the OTP to my Email Address and it should arrive at your inbox.

Receiving OTP in your email.

Step 4. Select Transaction Type

Now, you are inside the OAS Dashboard. You are given one hour to complete everything from Transaction to Confirmation.

Here, you have to set the MARINA office you want for your SRB or SID. Select any of the branches you’re comfortable going with.

Additionally, you also need to select your seafarer category as well as the MARINA service that you want. 

As you go through this, you will know the amount that you’ll pay for your appointment. 

Here are the details of what to expect from them.

MARINA Site you wish to visit:

  • Central Office
  • SM Manila
  • La Union
  • Batangas
  • Legazpi

Once everything is filled up, click Next.

Setting up your transactions and appointment date.

Step 5: Appointment Schedule

The system automatically gives you the earliest available date for your SID/SRB appointment schedule. The dates marked in yellow-green should have open slots. Those in red are booked!

Try out other MARINA offices to get earlier schedules. If there is no available schedule, choose a later date as the earlier ones are taken.

You also need to choose an appointment time before hitting NEXT!

“It is usually crowded in Manila. Select a different branch if the early schedules nearest to you are already taken. You can find better slots in the provinces.”

Setting up the appointment schedule and time for your SID/ SRB appearance.

Step 6. Applicant Info

Here you will enter your personal information. Keep your data accurate since this will be used for the printout of your SID card and/ or Seaman’s Book.

Some fields are asked depending on which document you choose. For example, when I choose NEW Application, it immediately asks for my personal data.

But when I choose RENEWAL, details regarding my old or current SID and SRB are asked.

Whatever appears on your screen, fill them out especially the ones marked with RED asterisk or boxes. You can not proceed to the next step unless you fill out all those items.

Some of the details that they asked for are the following:

  • Personal information
  • Birth Information
  • Contact information
  • Educational Attainment
  • Employment Profile
  • Identification Profile
  • Emergency Contact

Click on NEXT at the bottom of the page when you are satisfied filling out the details. You can also go back to the previous pages if you want to.

Filling out the applicant info before proceeding to payment section.

Step 7. Confirmation

Here will show the summary of your online appointment.

Double-check the details here including your name, address, email, application details, and appointment details.

If you are satisfied, click NEXT.

Confirming your account info and appointment details before proceeding to payment section.

Step 8. Setting up Payment Options

Paying for your SID/ SIRB is now very easy. MARINA partners with different payment portals and they can now accept payment via cash, eMoney, or BancNet nationwide.

Cash payments are paid over the counter in any pawnshops (RD, LH Lhuillier, Tambunting, etc.), rural banks (Malayan Bank, GR Bank, etc.), Malls or stores (7Eleven, LCC Malls, Gaisano Grand, etc), and business centers (LBC, VIAExpress, etc.

eMoney payment is the easiest and most convenient since you’ll only be using GCash or CLIQQ App.

BancNet accepts payment via member banks like OFW Bank, AUB, PBCOM, etc.

Once you decided which payment method you want to use, click on the Generate Reference Number at the bottom of the screen.

You should receive an email and SMS regarding your reference number.

Generating Payment Reference Number (PRN) after choosing a payment method.

Step 9. Payment

You should have your reference number showing up as well as its QR Code and amount to pay. 

Make sure to pay it within 48 hours or the system will purge your appointment and you will lose the slot as well as everything you entered.

If this happens, you have to start again with step 1 and follow through the steps.

That’s why I mentioned that GCash is the easiest and most convenient.

eMoney Payment Request showing your PRN and QR Code.

After paying this, you will receive a confirmation email and SMS that your schedule is fixed and your payment is well received.

Step 10. Day of Appointment (Appearance)

On your day of appointment, BRING ALL DOCUMENTARY REQUIREMENTS mentioned online including the printed copy of the confirmed appointment as well as your proof of payment.

Once there, you have to fall in line and wait for your name to be called for the Enrolment to Biographic and Biometric Details. This is where they double-triple-check the authenticity of your documents.

They will also capture your facial and specimen signature to be put into the system.

Step 11. Releasing Your MARINA SID/ SRB Documents

This is the final step and most awaited part.

Issuance for SID or SRB or both is within 3-WORKING HOURS after payment.

The teller will call your name and hand down your fresh SID and/ or SRB. Verify if all the details written there are correct.

To activate your SID/ SRB, you must electronically sign them before leaving the counter as well as paste the documentary stamp in your SRB.

Expedite Process for SID/ SRB

Only the MARINA Central Office accepts expedited processing of our SID/ SRB application.

Here are the requirements:

  1. POEA-Approved Employment Contract or OEC
  2. Letter Request from Company for Expedited Processing.
  3. Confirmed E-ticket 3 (Three) working days before the estimated time of departure(ETD).
  4. Oath of Undertaking by the manning agency
  5. Have a confirmed appointment on a future date.

The expedited process follows a different path than your regular appointment. 

For this method, you have to head on to this website and fill in the necessary information. 

You must also upload the documentary requirements and submit them once done.

Expedite process in applying for your SID/ SRB.

        Good day po. SIRB po isa sa mga requirements to work on board pero kelangan nyo rin po ibang documents and certificates gaya ng Passport, SID, BT, SDSD, PADAMS, etc. Ask nyo lang po kompanya na aapplyan nyo kung anu-anong mga trainings ang nrerequire nila.

        Ancillary po ang seafarer type nyo.

    • Gibi

      I think you have to reapply since matagal na po iyon pero you can try contacting them po.

      For SID/SRB/DCOC concerns, you may directly email the Manpower Development Service at their email addresses : / and/or call them at (02) 8524-6517 or 0920 250 6619 during working hours (8:00AM-5:00PM Monday-Friday) for their kind assistance, as they are the office handling the processing of SID/SRB/DCOC applications.

Meron din po silang messaging icon sa bottom right corner ng SIDSRB platform nila if ever need nyo po silang kontakin.

      Hello sir ask ko lang po. Kasi nagkamali po ako ng lagay birth place sa SID ko and naconfirm ko na din po yung appointment on friday by paying on pisopay. Maayos pa po ba yun nung nasa verification when I appeared in Marina office. Thank you

      • Gibi

        Inform nyo lang po regarding your error para mapalitan nila. Don’t forget to bring all documentary requirements.

  12. Alnair T

    Good day. tanong ko lang sana, noong nag apply ako for schedule , hindi na daw nirerequire ang SID kapag valid pa ang SIRB mo at walang option na SID lang ang iaapply ko. on board ako ngayon pero balibalita ko hinahanap daw ang SID. mag 1 month palang ako pero biyabiyahe kami ng brazil.

    i was hoping to apply while im onboard. baka kasi mag kaproblema ako pagdating sa brazil. any insights regarding my situation? thanks.

    • Gibi

      Sir sa pagkakaalam ko, iilan lang puerto lang ang naghahanap ng SID sa mga seaman at isa na yun ang brazil. Pero hinahanap lng nila yung kung mag sign on or sign off kayo. Kung port visit lang naman for trade/ cargo operation, hndi na po required yan.

      Kung required yan sa inyo sir ang kumpanya nyo na mismo magsasabi sa inyo na kumuha. Sa ngayon, ang SRB natin ay enough na.

    • Anonymous

      Pwede sir magapply ng SID kahit valid pa SIRB mo. Isellect mo lang yung “no* pag tinanong ka kung valid pa sirb mo. Tapos tyaka ka magapply ng SID lang.

        Good morning po maam. MARINA has no clear answer to this po at eto ang nakuha kong sagot sa kanila:

    Good ever Sir/Ma’am

    Meron po ako SIRB (issued Jan 2019) but unfortunately hindi tugma yung Place of birth ko sa SIRB and Passport…..

    Passport = San Pablo City
    SIRB = San Pablo City, Laguna

    Ano po actions ang need ko gawin sa new appointment website ng SID/SRB? Since di na nagrerelease ng SIRB? Macoconvert po ba sa SRB ang aking SIRB?

    Nagtry po ako mag reprint SRB pero required ang Current SID number which is wala pa po akong SID….

    ano po need kong actions or steps na gawin sa website appointment para sa situation ko? Need ko po ba kumuha New SRB? Kase sirb meron po sa akin or renewal or reprint?

    Please Reply
    Thank you po, God bless

    • Gibi

      Hello sir magandang gabie.

      Hindi na po nag-iissue ng SIRB ang MARINA. Ang policy po nila ngayon kung kukuha ka ng SRB ay dapat meron kang SID.

      Kung irereprint mo po ang SIRB mo to SRB para macorrectionan ang place of birth, magfile ka muna ng SID sir. pag meron ka nang SID, saka kna makakuha ng SRB.

      Pero make sure sir na tama ung details at personal information mo.

      • Christian Sabodogo Rivera

        Sir ano b gagawin d ko kasi napuntahan yung scheduled date kp ng cop?

      • Gibi

        No appearance na po ang COP sir. Pag nakumpleto mo na ang requirements at nabayaran mo na, hintayin mo nlang COP mo sa MISMO at pwede mo yun idownload/ print.

  22. Altheia Gie Evangelista

    Need pa Po ba naka COP ung BT bago makakuha ng Seamans book?? May sched. Na po kasi ako for sid at SRB ang kaso ndi pa nka COP ung BT ko,. Sana masagot po ung question ko salamt.

    • Gibi

      Hndi na kailangan COP ng BT maam kung kukuha ka ng Seaman’s Book. pero if possible po ipa cop nyo na ang BT nyo.

  23. Charrose Sungcados

    Good morning po. Tanong ko lang po sana kung need po ba ipaCOP ung BT bago kmuha ng seamans book for new applicant po? salamat po

    • Gibi

      Hello sir. Di na po kelangan ipa COP ang BT nyo kung kukuha ng Seaman’s Book. Kelangan nyo lang po ipakita ang Certificate of Completion ng Basic Training mo.

  24. Tricia Nicolle Mojedo

    good evening open po ba ang MARINA bukas sa Batangas Branch po? May appointment po kase ako maraming salamat.

      • Karen

        Hi Sir. Paano po if nakakuha na ng slot and nakabayad narin, pero mali yung nailagay na middle name at bday? Is there a way to correct this pa po ba? Or pwede namang sa mismong date ng appointment sa site na ipacorrect?
        Iveverify pa po ba nila yung mga infos? Para sana maipacorrect. Thanks, sana masagot.

      • Gibi

        Hello Maam. Previously, they will verify your info at the day of your appointment. ipa-correct nyo nalang po during that time. Pero ngayon since pandemic, contact nyo nlang po sila via email or chat dun sa bottom right corner nila na chatbox.

        Either way, kelangan nyo rin po i-double check ang SRB nyo pagkabigay sa inyo. Sabihin nyo nlang po ung error pra ma-correct nila.

        In that case, kelangan balikan or hintayin nyo ulit ang next releasing nyan.

  25. John nichol alcantara

    • Gibi

      Hello sir magandang gabi. Yung site ko po na ay hindi nagbobook o nagbibigay ng schedule ng SID o SRB appointments. Dun po kayo sa website ng MARINA magpa-appoint.

  31. omar serut

    good day sir bakit ang hirap makakuha ng slot ng appointment ng srb sir.minsan may available nman tapos pag click mo no slot available pero naka green nman sya,ibig sabihin open dapat sya

    • Gibi

      Mahirap tlaga yan sir dahil sa sobrang daming nag-aapply kaya ang ginagawa ng iba is company nlang nagffile. Pwede ka makakuha ng slot mag advans booking ka o dun ka sa MARINA Branch outside metro manila.

      • romar

        good day sir pwede ba mag booking outside metro manila pero dito ka sa manila mag attend ng final evaluation.thanks po.

      • Gibi

        Pwede sir as long as present ka sa final evaluation mo.

    • Jc

      Is it mandatory to get SID even if my SRB will not be expiring anytime soon?

      • Reggie Vismanos Dayto

        Good Day Sir

        Ask ko lang kung nag process ba mga Regional Offices, especially Batangas para sa pagrenew ng SRB at SID para sa Walk-In? As per Eng’r. Nelson Ramirez, since Feb. 07, 2021, accept na daw mga Regional Branches ng Walk-In, pero parang sa Manila lang kc pwede Walk-In base sa mga nakikita at nababasa ko sa social media. Pls. Enlighten me, if possible. Thanks in Advance

      • Gibi

        Hello sir magandang gabi. As far as I know, sa manila lang tumatanggap ng walk in sa SRB/ SID sir. Sa ibang branches, kukuha ka pa rin ng slot.

  32. Mgeni

    Does this MARINA has other branches out of the Philippenes or their branches are in the Philippenes only?

      • Armin Gemarino

        Hi sir good day po.. na cancell ko po ang una kung appointment tansaction due some reason.paano ko po maka process ulit pra sa application ng SID? thank you

      • Gibi

      • Mary Ann

        Sir pwede po ba s ibang branch mg set Ng appointment pero s manila mg appearance pra lng po mkakakuha Ng appointment?

      • Gibi

        Maam kng saan po kayo nagset ng appointment doon po kayo dapat mag appearance.


    Good Evening sir!
    Sa COP application po sa MISMO, do I need to wait na ma.APPROVED muna ang documents uploaded, before I can take an appointment for the releasing?
    Uploaded plang kasi documents ko, wala pang approval from MARINA Evaluators, pero pinapabayad na ako.
    So, nagselect na ako ng appointment date at magbabayad na.
    Tama po ba sir ang ginawa ko?
    Or I have to make sure first na APPROVED muna lahat ang uploaded document ko?

    Thanks po sir!

    • Gibi

      That’s odd. Yung sakin po sir kelangan ma-approve muna ang docs bago magbayad. makikita din kasi sa MISMO na hindi ka maka-proceed sa next step kung hindi approved ang docs mo at ang system nila mismo mag-eemail or magttext sayo kung approve kana at kelangan mo na magbayad. Nasa MISMO rin yan sir kung required kna nila magbayad.

    • Jenny

      Sir Gibi pwedi ko po ba pag sabayin nalang ang pagkuha ng SID at SRB kahit d ako naka appointment pra sa SID,for example sa SRB lng ako naka appointment pwdi po ba kmuha nlng din ng SID?thanks po

      • Gibi
