Medical examinations abroad


Medical examinations abroad must be performed by medical practitioners who have been authorised or recognised as a maritime medical practitioner in the country concerned - however, the master of a Danish ship must issue and endorse the health certificate and report the result of the examination to the Danish Maritime Authority. 

The medical practitioner must use the Danish medical examination for seafarers and fishermen according to the Danish regulations. The medical practitioner must use the form "Medical certificate for examination of seafarers".

Retrieve the form "Medical certificate for examination of seafarers".

The seafarer or the fisherman is recommended to make an appointment with the medical practitioner and bring the following for the medical examination:

  • Identification (discharge book, passport, driver's licence or any other photo ID)
  • Health certificate if you already have one

The master can report the result of the medical examination by sending an email to kc@dma.dk
