Overseas Career Opportunities (BAHRAIN | ITALY | SPAIN)

Serving with Forward Deployed Regional Maintenance Center (FDRMC) in a forward-deployed location supporting U.S. Fifth and Sixth Fleets, you will have an immediate impact on deployed, operational ships and their Sailors.

Living Overseas

The Navy maintains comprehensive documents that answer most questions about overseas living and working called Statement of Living and Working Conditions. 

Each document details specifics to each location such as country information, cost of living, housing, medical/dental services, education, mail, banking, child care, security considerations, passport/visa requirements, PCS information, vehicles, pets, pay and allowances, and more. These documents are a fantastic resource to learn more about a specific location. Review the official Statement of Living and Working Conditions for each of FDRMC's sites below.
