Issuance of Belize marine licenses(COC)



Belize was placed on the IMO STCW White List in november 2001. Also, the IMO’s Maritime Safety Committee has confirmed that in accordance with Regulation 1/8 of the STCW 1978 Convention, it's received the specified freelance analysis that demonstrates that British Honduras is giving full and complete result to the said Convention. The procedures for supplying of such Endorsements by IMMARBE are based on equivalence, requiring proof that the person is in possession of an acceptable, recognized and valid certificate from a rustic that's on the IMO White List.

Although there are too many agent who promise to get you Belize COC but CAMABELIZE i.e. CAMA for IMMARBE-Belize is the only designated IMMARBE Office in INDIA. It is also the Office of the Dy.Registrar – IMMARBE Belize / Principal Officer – CAMA Belize / Dy.Commissioner – Belize Maritime Affairs.
