Bank Account

sandra92sandra92 Member Posts: 2


I'm looking for how I can prepare my onboard life, I'm in the talent pool and I'm waiting the date of departure. I know that we have an bank account to pay everything in the ship but how to receive donations and use them to pay fees in my home country during my stay?

Is there a possibily to transfer some money to the internal bank account to an another outside?

Thanks for your answer,


(sorry for my english, I'm trying to improve that)

    Hello, Sandra,

    Thank you for your desire to bring hope and healing with Mercy Ships. It's exciting that you are in the Talent Pool and are waiting to serve. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long.

    Since you are not a US taxpayer and will be serving short-term (I assume), you will have a way to wire transfer money from your crew bank account to your personal bank account, and you may use this to pay fees in your home country during your stay.

    If you were from the U.S.A. or Canada, it would be a bit different.

    Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any further questions.
