Form MA–1020 includes instructions for completing and submitting the application, blank VISA Application forms and a request for information regarding the operations and U.S. citizenship of the applicant company. A copy of the VISA document as published in the Federal Register on September 23, 2005 will also be provided with the package. This information is needed in order to assist MARAD in making a determination of the applicant’s eligibility. An applicant company must provide an affidavit that demonstrates that the company is qualified to document a vessel under 46 U.S.C. 12102, and that it owns, or bareboat charters and controls, oceangoing, militarily useful vessel(s) for purposes of committing assets to the VISA program. As previously mentioned, VISA applicants must return the completed VISA application documents to MARAD not later than May 31, 2006. Once MARAD has reviewed the application and determined VISA eligibility, MARAD will sign the VISA application document which completes the eligibility phase of the VISA enrollment process. After VISA eligibility is approved by MARAD and USTRANSCOM, approved applicants are required to execute a joint VISA Enrollment Contract (VEC) with the DOD [Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (SDDC) and the Military Sealift Command (MSC)] which will specify the participant’s Stage III commitment for the period October 1, 2006 through September 30, 2007. Once the VEC is completed, the applicant completes the DOD contracting process by executing a Drytime Contingency Contract (DCC) with MSC (for Charter Operators) and if applicable, a VISA Contingency Contract (VCC) with SDDC (for Liner Operators). MARAD reserves the right to revalidate all eligibility requirements without notice. For Additional Information and Applications Contact: Taylor E.
