Can I have an Official Number and Call Sign allocated before vessel registration?

Yes. Provided that the Cayman Registry is in receipt of the necessary application forms, supporting documentation and relevant fee.  At this time, the client may wish to apply for a Ship Radio Station License via the Information & Communications Technology Authority.  Also, once the Official Number and Call Sign have been issued, the client may wish to have the vessel marked and a Carving and Marking Note may be issued once the Certificate of Survey has been submitted and approved.
