Christmas processing times

Office hours

Maritime NZ’s offices will be closed from midday Monday 24 December 2018 and will reopen on Thursday 3 January 2019. During this period, seafarer certification services will not be available.

During the lead up to this holiday period, we will be prioritising applications for people who have provided all of the required documents before Friday 30 November. If we receive your application after this date or your application is incomplete, we will make every effort to issue your certificate prior to Christmas. However, we cannot guarantee that all certificates will be issued before Maritime NZ closes for the Christmas and New Year break.

To ensure documents do not go astray over the Christmas break, certificates will not be couriered after Wednesday 19 December.
