Health status

An individual must fulfil the prescribed health conditions for working on a ship.

A seafarer must have a valid medical certificate during the entire period of working on a ship.

If the medical certificate expires during navigation, it remains valid until the next port of call, where an authorised medical practitioner is available; however, this period must not be longer than three months.
