If you wish to be approved for conducting Norwegian maritime medicals, you must send your written application by post to the embassy in Canberra. The application must include the following documentation:
The act of lodging an application does not guarantee approval as a Norwegian seafarer’s doctor. Your application will be assessed by the embassy based on the provided documentation and the need for approved doctors in your geographical area. The embassy may on request provide a preliminary assessment of the need for further doctors in your geographical area before you attend a course in maritime medicine approved by NMA. However, such assessment cannot take into account future changes, and does not guarantee approval if an application is later lodged.
All applications will be assessed individually in the order they are received. Approved doctors will receive a conditional approval letter from the embassy. Before you can begin conducting Norwegian maritime medicals, you must obtain a Norwegian national ID-number (“D-number”) and log-in details for the online portal for submission of electronic medical certificates. Information regarding this process will be included in the approval letter. Once you are ready to use the electronic submission system, the embassy will issue you with an “Approval Certificate”.
