Seafarer Visa Re-issuance Program (SeaVRP) U.S. C1/D Visa Guide and Information

A crew member serving onboard a sea vessel or aircraft in the United States needs a crew visa. Crew members of an aircraft or ship that will be transiting through the United States or its waters generally use a combination transit/crew visa (C-1/D).  Crew members who work aboard vessels within the Outer Continental Shelf, may qualify for a modified B-1 visa in lieu of a crew visa.

Manning agencies that lawfully operate within the Philippines can apply to join the Manning Agency Accreditation Program (MAAP) at U.S. Embassy Manila to facilitate the visa application of their seafarers.

Beginning August 14, 2017, the new timeslot for SeaVRP12 applicants is now 12:00pm.  The previous timeslot of 1:30pm will no longer be available.

All manning agencies must submit the electronic application (DS-160) form for applicants not later than five calendar days before the appointment date.

Manning agencies must cancel an appointment not later than 5 calendar days before the scheduled appointment date.
