How About By Mail?
It is also possible to send your change of address to Vessel Documentation Online by mail. But the online portal is more advantageous than the traditional mail because it is not subject to any delays associated with mail. Furthermore, all applications and submissions from vesseldocumentation.us are reviewed by documentation processors to ensure faster processing.

All you need is to fill out and enter the correct vessel name and official number to properly change this information in the database of Vessel Documentation Online. After notifying us, you will receive your renewed certificate of documentation to your new address, and it will also show you the new address.

To avoid delays, make sure that you enter the right vessel name and its official number. You may notify Vessel Documentation Online of any change in your address anytime.
