MERCHANT MARINE SALARY ACROSS THE WORLD

The most asked question for the Merchant Marine is how much does the job really pay you?  I have done careful analysis of the salary paid in Merchant Marine across some of major Maritime nations.

The salary/wages paid in Merchant Marine are generally more than other jobs on land, this is mainly due to the fact that Merchant Mariners are not regular workers, they have the Specialised documents and Competencies (Certificates of International seafarers) obtained after rigorous training. Below given are the  Salaries of Merchant Marine officers in the respective country.

All Salaries given are in UNITED STATES DOLLER (USD) $/ yearly.
