What is a Seaman Book or Seaman’s Discharge Book ? How do i apply for a Seaman’s Book ? What are the requirements or checklist to apply for a seaman’s book ? which countries issue them ? what are the fees, checklist, processing time, validity, procedure ?

A Seaman Record Book or Continuous Discharge Certificate is a continuous record of a seaman’s service.
This document certifies that the person holding is a seaman as per The International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watch keeping for Seafarers (STCW), 1978, as amended 
Every seafarer must carry this document while on board, which is also an official and legal record of his sea experience.
The master of the vessel signs the document each time a seaman is signed off from the vessel certifying his experience on board. This is one of the most important documents while a seaman is travelling on board.
