For the convenience of Shipowners, Ship Managers, Ship Brokers, Legal Advisors and Agents, we have provided a summary on the various types of registrations available.

All vessel types may be registered under the Kiribati Flag. Vessels above 15 years are required to undergo a pre-registration survey to ensure the vessel is seaworthy unless the vessel maintains classification and statutory certification under any one of the IACS members.

Learn About Procedures

Kiribati Ship Registry allows the registration of vessels for short durations under special circumstances, such as voyages on single trip for scrap or for delivery. The validity of a Short Term Registration is typically 1 month, with extension allowable up to 3 months for valid reasons provided to the Registry.

Mortgage registration and discharge procedures are allowed for vessels registered under Kiribati Flag.

Bareboat charter registration allows a vessel to be registered with Kiribati under the name of the bareboat charterer. This requires the consent of the underlying registry, and the registration will be valid for the period covering the bareboat charter agreement. After successful registration, the vessel will have full privileges of a Kiribati vessel and will need to comply fully with rules and regulations as stipulated in the Kiribati Merchant Shipping Act.

Learn About Procedures

A vessel registered under Kiribati Ship Registry may be bareboat chartered-out and registered with another flag in the name of the bareboat charterers. During this period, the vessel’s status under the Kiribati Ship Registry will be suspended until its reactivation.

Learn About Procedures

A new registration is required upon a Kiribati vessel’s change of ownership, and financial incentives are offered to the new owners for maintaining the vessel under the Kiribati Flag.
