A Seaman's Service Book (or Seaman's Service Record), also known as Seaman's Discharge Book, is a complete document in which various details and aspects of the seaman's professional life are recorded. It looks very much like a passport and is the same size, but has a very distinct scope.

As the name suggests, the service record contains details of where, when, how and on which ship the seafarer served. This information is important not only for the personal record but also for the government, potential employers and other members of the marine industry.

Details provided in the service record include:

  • Name of the seafarer with a recent photograph
  • Age and gender
  • Identification marks
  • Nationality and address
  • Identification number of service record book (unique)
  • Date and place of birth
  • Date of issue and expiry of the book
  • Name and rank of issuing authority

The book also includes details such as the seafarer's employment record. This includes the name of the company, rank, date and reason for leave. It mentions relevant details about their careers such as travel summaries, promotion records, visa approvals, official notices and ship's skill sets.To apply for a service book, a few steps must be taken.
