Antigua and Barbuda currently has undertakings with the following countries and is able to issue endorsements to certificates of competency issued by them:

Applications for endorsements must be made through a recognized Filing Agent.  The individual seafarer, manager, or owner can prepare the application but must submit it to a Filing Agent to be finalized. The Filing Agent will confirm authenticity of documents and signatures and then submit the application to the flag State.
