The Ministry of Transport has launched a new package of digital maritime services related to seafarer affairs as MOT continues its digital transformation and service automation plans that aim for performance excellence, faster transactions, and simpler procedures.

These four new e-services, which will be available for the public on a test run at MOT’s official website, are: Endorsement Attesting the Recognition of the Working on a Tanker Certificate, Endorsement Attesting the Recognition of GMDSS Certificate, Confirmed Receipt of Application (CRA) Certificate, and Endorsement Attesting the Recognition of Certificate of Competency (CoC).

This takes the total number of MOT’s maritime transportation digital services available at MOT’s website to 13, relating to small crafts and seafarer affairs.

Beneficiaries can receive the services they applied for at their preferred delivery location via Qatar Post. The new digital services enable the public to apply for these services they need anytime, anyplace, thereby saving their time and effort.

The new package of e-services shows that MOT keeps modernising a transportation sector that is supportive of the technological advancements and economic diversification by making a qualitative shift in digitising the sector’s services by introducing smart solutions to the public and deploying modern technologies to provide better services. Additionally, the Ministry, by so doing, is implementing its plans that aim at improving the services and making them easier, simpler, available, and accessible anytime, anyplace, triggering higher public satisfaction.
