Maritime Welfare Fee

Maritime Welfare Fee (MWF) is collected to provide welfare activities, training and subsidy for housing of seafarers at Maritime House when they are in port. The amount payable depends on the gross tonnage of the vessel.

MWF is compulsory and no waiver request will be entertained.

(b) Exceeding 1,000 GT but not exceeding 2,000 GT $40.00
(c) Exceeding 2,000 GT but not exceeding 5,000 GT $60.00

*In case of a vessel with dual tonnages or a vessel with an open or closed shelter deck, the higher tonnage shall be deemed to be the gross tonnage of the vessel.

Paying Maritime Welfare Fee in Advance

The owner, master or agent of any vessel exceeding 75 GT but not exceeding 1,000 GT (or exceeding 500 GT but not exceeding 1,000 GT in the case of fishing vessels calling at the Jurong Fishery Port) may opt to pay the Maritime Welfare Fee annually in advance, which is equivalent to 12 times the fees payable by the vessel. No refund shall be made of any fee paid annually.

Fishing vessels not exceeding 500 GT calling at the Jurong Fishery Port shall be exempted from the payment of the Maritime Welfare Fee.
