MANSHIP Pre-Employment Medical Examination


Applicants will be given a referral letter to accredited clinics and will be scheduled for a medical examination. Applicants are expected to visit the said clinics on the date they are scheduled to get their medical examination.

Pre-employment medical examinations are intended to determine if an applicant is healthy enough to perform the job he is hired for. Thus, it is imperative that the applicant passes these medical exams.


Upon getting a clean bill of health from the accredited clinics; the applicant is now ready to apply for his visa where needed. Manship offers assistance in the application of foreign visas. Manship's Fleet Documentation team will coordinate closely with the applicant with regard to documents needed and scheduling of appointment with the embassy. Sometimes, the applicants would be requested to personally go to an embassy for visa application. In cases like this, an orientation is provided to the applicant a day before his scheduled appointment.

MANSHIP Contracts


The contract is drawn mainly when the applicant has gone through his medical and visa application successfully. The contract will be based on the agreements made during the job assignment discussions.


The applicants do not pay Manship for the assistance it provides while the applicant is going through the process mentioned above.



The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration collects payment of membership contribution amounting to US$25 on a per contract basis. This amount is usually shared by the Mariner and his principal. Manship and its principal, however, shoulder this amount in full. It is not deducted from the mariner's salary.
