  • the minimum wage for an able seafarer would be increased by 27 USD over the next 3 years. The wages will provide an overall increase of 4.5% on the current rate of 614 USD, with an increase of 4 USD as of 1 July 2019, followed by an increase of 7 USD as of 1 January 2020 and a final increase of 16 USD as of 1 January 2021.
