The email attachment MUST contain ALL completed pages of the CG 719K or K/E as one (1) attachment.
Do not send a link to the attachment as it can't be accessed by the USCG's IT system and they will kick it back.
Once you have the pdf built you can click the medical button inside of mmseas.com and there is an option to create the medical email exactly as the USCG wants it.
It's as easy as clicking the 'at' button, adding your 10 page pdf attachment to the email, and hitting send.
If you are unable to do so electronically, the application can also be faxed to 304-433-3407.
If the Coast Guard has trouble with your pdf submission you will receive an email that says something like this: "Please be advised, if you are receiving this email, there will be no medical certificate application opened at the National Maritime Center."
If you get such an email, try saving the form as a pdf again and resending (a tip: make sure you save it as a pdf that is in the best format for electronic submissions), and if you still have trouble, fax it to 304-433-3407.
We hope this made your life a little easier and if you have other questions the MM-SEAS team is always here to help!
No matter what, when you are ready to submit your application, you can choose to have the MM-SEAS staff create a perfect application, handle the USCG application fees and work with the USCG on your behalf to resolve any issues for a flat fee of $299 or you can choose to submit on your own.
