Application Forms which include a list of documents required for Registration can be downloaded from this website. These can be submitted by email for Provisional Registration

PROVISIONAL REGISTRATION

Any vessel that applies for a standard registration and is accepted will be registered Provisionally for 6 months. This allows you, the owner to collate all of the documents in original format, as per the "Achieve Permanent Registration Status" list of documents.

 

The date in which your vessel is registered with be referred by St. Kitts & Nevis International Ship Registry as the "Anniversary Date" or the 'Date of First Registration". This date will be used to calculate when the vessels annual taxes are due and when certificates are calculated for expiry.

 

Upon achieving Permanent Status, your vessels' registration will be upgraded for a period of 4 years from the Date of First Registration.

 

Regardless of whether your vessel is provisionally or permanently registered, the vessel will incur annual fees as of the Anniversary date.

SPECIAL PURPOSE REGISTRATION

Special Purpose Registration is available for delivery voyages/one-off voyages/scrap voyages.

The period of registration is for 3 months only.

 

There is a simplified and speedier Registration procedure. Most registrations can be completed in one working day if all documents are correctly submitted at the one time.

 

A reduced rate of fees applies for such Registrations.

 

Please apply to the International Registrar of Shipping and Seamen or a Maritime Registrar or Service provider for full details and costs if you wish to register a ship under this procedure.
