The following questionnaire has been prepared to assist in establishing, principally, the true nationality of a stowaway who is without valid travel documentation and to facilitate issuance of a temporary travel document from his country of origin in order that the stowaway can be disembarked and repatriated. Every effort, therefore, should be made to obtain a truthful answer to each of the questions.
Many stowaways display a determination not to return to their country of origin. Accordingly, you should be mindful that stowaways will sometimes to great lengths to disguise their true nationality by fabricating or falsifying information.
On discovery of a stowaway on board, this office and/or the Club's local correspondent should be notified as early as possible. Prompt notification can have a substantial bearing on how quickly the stowaway is disembarked.
