Läkarintyg – Sjöfart

Medical certification


Medical certificate for seafaring

You can work at limited, unlimited, and internal speed as a sailor. The authorisation is usually valid for 2–4 years, depending on your license. A rule of thumb is that the greater the speed range you work in, the more medical requirements are placed on the medical certificate.  

The Swedish Transport Agency advises everyone who applies for unlimited speed to get vaccinated against Tuberculosis.

Legehusets Seaman/Seafarers certificate is issued per STCW Manila, and we are also connected to the maritime medical web. The certificate is electronic, but you always need to have it on you. 

The medical examination takes place digitally. A nurse performs the physical examination. Then you meet one of our doctors digitally to review the test results.
