New to Homeport? Here is what it’s all about:
Homeport is the United States Coast Guard’s enterprise Internet portal. It was designed to support the secure information sharing requirements resulting from the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA) and to provide information about the USCG’s primary missions.
The site can be confusing at first and many of the pages are blank or contain outdated information but buried deep inside are some very useful tools.
Here are some of our favorites:
- Check on the status of your license application at the Merchant Mariner Application Status page.
- Do you have all the documents you need to be approved? Find out by using an Application Checklist.
- Watch ISPS training videos by entering the word “video” in Homeport’s search box.
- Can’t find the licensing information you need? Try the Merchant Mariner Information Links Page
Outside of homeport you can USCG license file for free by participating in MARAD’s Mariner Outreach System.
