Renewal of Mariner Credentials: Lapse in Appropriations

Renewal of Mariner Credentials during the Lapse in Appropriations

Due to the Federal Government’s lapse in appropriations for Fiscal Year 2014, the Coast Guard is unable to process all mariner credentials in time to ensure that all mariners receive their renewed credentials before their current documents expire. The mariner’s most likely impacted by this situation are those individuals whose credentials expire between October 1, 2013 and November 30, 2013.
