MSCHOA Vessel Movement Registration Form

The form ‘Register a Vessel’s Movements’ is reproduced below from the MSCHOA website. The following is to be noted:

The MSCHOA website should always be consulted to ensure that the most up to date version of the form is being used.

Registration is required within the area bounded by 78°E, 10°S, 23°N and Suez.

The form may be completed online by ship operators, (or Masters where vessels have internet access), but note that registration with the MSCHOA website is required before the form can be completed.

MSCHOA will also accept faxed forms, and forms by email. Again ship operators should ensure that they and/or their vessels are in receipt of the latest version of the form.
