 1. Apply for Departure Certificate
 
  The captain or his agent must go to the nearest maritime branch to go through the formalities with a valid yacht registration certificate or pleasure vessel licence book (licensed in Hong Kong). If you do not have a certificate of registration, you can go through the procedures with the sales slip or the certificate of construction.
 
  The master or his agent must complete and sign each column of Forms MO618 A “General Declaration Form” (in duplicate) and “Departure Notice” (one copy). Please fill in "Not applicable" in any unsuitable column.
 
  After checking the relevant documents and receiving the prescribed fee of HK $ 97, the Department will issue an exit permit. If the yacht does not leave Hong Kong waters within 72 hours after the departure certificate is issued, the certificate will be invalid. If the original voyage is cancelled, the master or local contact person must notify the maritime branch; if the original voyage is postponed more than 72 hours after the issuance of the departure permit, you must reapply for the departure permit.
 
  2. Mail the "Notice of Arrival"
 
  After arriving at the destination or any other port, the captain must send the "arrival notice" to the Hong Kong Marine Department by airmail.
 
  If the yacht is going to the high seas, Macau or other inland coastal ports close to Hong Kong waters, there is no need to send back an "arrival notice". The Marine Department assumes that these yachts usually go out only briefly and will report to the Department when they return to Hong Kong waters.
 
  3. Ensure the effective operation of radio equipment and signaling equipment
 
  The Director of the Marine Department of Hong Kong is usually responsible for search and rescue operations in the waters north of 15 ° north latitude and 120 ° east of longitude east. Yacht captains must bear in mind that if there is no information on the location of the ship in distress, search and rescue operations will be difficult to achieve even if they are carried out. Therefore, the captain of the yacht must ensure that his communication equipment operates normally.
 
  4. Contact your local contact person before sailing
 
  Please fill in the details of the local contact person in column (8) of the “Departure Notice” as much as possible. If the Hong Kong contact person suspects that the yacht has not returned within the time limit, or is concerned about the safety of the yacht due to any other circumstances, he is responsible for reporting directly to the Marine Department. Whether the Marine Department will mobilize search and rescue operations depends largely on the information provided by our local contacts. To avoid false positives, yacht captains must provide accurate and detailed information to their local contacts.
