Supporting Seafarers Going Digital

Seafarers require document proofs and certifications to work on vessels. However, paper credentials can easily get lost or damaged, and verifying their authenticity can be time-consuming and costly. 

Since March 2023, MSF has been working closely with ZADA to allow Myanmar Seafarers to securely store various digital verifiable credentials in the ZADA Wallet on their phone, making it more convenient for seafarers to share them with employers and other stakeholders. The Myanmar Seafarer ID is already provided as a ZADA Credential.

Issuing verifiable ZADA credentials for seafarers and accepting them as proof of claims is one way to support the ecosystem, ensure the safety and success of Myanmar seafarers, and contribute to the modernization and growth of the seafaring industry.

ZADA provides a secure, verifiable and convenient way for seafarers to prove their different claims digitally. ZADA can be used for various purposes such as replacing traditional paper-based identity documents and providing access to digital services. Overall, ZADA for seafarers can improve the overall management of crew resources and enhance the seafarer’s experience, making it a valuable tool for the industry.
