A personal dispensation for a crew member is only granted for unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of the person concerned. This includes cases where a crew member is unable to perform his duties as a result of an accident on board or if an event has occurred in the personal life of the person concerned that forces him to disembark (serious illness or death of a close family member).
Only the ship manager can submit an application by using the application form.
You can apply via the Personal dispensation application form (Dutch) on working days between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm. A fully completed application form with the required supporting documents, as mentioned in point 4 in the application form, should be send by e-mail to email@example.com.
