    For your kind information that there are two ways through which a candidate can take entry
    in Merchant Navy is from deck side and second is from engineering side .
    If you interested in deck side you should be physically fit . Your eyesight should be 6/6 .
    But if you come from engineering side then you will get relaxation in your eyesight .
    As you said that your eyesight is +2 then you can take entry from engineering side .
    So do not worry if you want to join Merchant Navy you can join as engineer .
    but you should be marine engineer or mechanical engineer . Best of luck .

    Hi friend !

    The Merchant Navy is a non-combatant commercial fleet, which deals with transporting cargo and also passengers, by sea.The merchant navy fleet is therefore composed of passenger vessels, cargo liners, tankers, carriers, as well as other special types of vehicles. A maritime career is full of adventure and long voyages to different countries.

    So the one who wants to be one among this field must be sharp intelligent for actively doing his/her work on the location .
    For this all are not eligible , the applicant must be physically fit and must be active .

    The basic requirements for entering into Merchant Navy are :

    Class X pass students or higher but from non-science background can join the Merchant Navy,
    Class XII (PCM) students or higher can join the Merchant Navy by enrolling for the HND Nautical Science Course,
    BE Mechanical Graduates can join the Merchant Navy by enrolling for the GEC UK Conversion Course ,
    BE Non Mechanical Graduates can join the Merchant Navy by enrolling for the GEC Fiji Conversion Course .

    As you have said you have a sight of +2 you may be rejected at the time of physical test .
    Better choose for another option .
    There are also many fields in the NAVY which doesn't need the eye sharpness .


    Good Luck !!

    Dear Friend , you are definitely eligible for merchant navy if you have eye sight of 2 , because eyesight of 2 means that you have a vision of 6/6 which is required in merchant navy.

    So , you are 100 % eligible for the same.

    Dear friend,

    ~> Sorry to say, but I think you are not eligible for Merchant Navy.

    ~> Only Physical Fit Candidates are admitted in Merchant Navy.

    ~> Candidates having eyesight 6/6 are admitted in Merchant Navy.

    ~> As you have eyesight 2, so you are not eligible to apply for Merchant Navy.
