Belize Seaman Book
Otho’s are a relentless hard working team, very open in communication and result oriented. The consultants have a very good network in the shipping industry.
Otho Global helped us in the processing of seaman books for our crew on an urgent basis and delivered in just one day as promised. The consultant was a great listener and had a keen eye for the requirement of KSA visa procedures.
The team at Otho Global were fantastic throughout every stage of the process. They made sure that I was always aware of the progress and kept updated throughout, and combined with their knowledge of the maritime sector, meant that the experience was of working with people who understood the market place and cared about both the people and the requirements rather than just trying to fill a role. I would certainly work with them again in the future.
