Get to know ISMBR


ISMBR - Internacional Serviços Marítimos Brasil

We are a recruitment and selection agency officially recognized by the cruise industry, certified by the Maritime Labor Convention (MLC 2006).

Brief history:

Fruit of the dreams of our good times as crew members, we founded in 2009 the ISMBR agency. Motivated by the growth of the cruise industry and the market's lack of offering good agency services, we decided to make ourselves available to offer transparency, quality and agility. Since the beginning of our operations, we have shaped the company's philosophy, committed to our values. We visualize innovation as our projection towards the future.

We do not hire candidates, we are only responsible for directing candidates to the contracting companies (ship owners), supporting them with the procedures and obtaining the necessary documentation.


We serve candidates from all regions of Brazil and Guatemala. Count on the ISMBR team.
