  1. Hi Sukhchain, 1. For work experiences, look at the AMSA final skill assessment letter which will be issued to you few days after clearing your orals. The letter usually mentions the total stipulated work experiences in the maritime industry. 2. For BSc nautical science degree, you can only take “Point Test Advice” from Vetassess. Pls check the Vetassess website for the steps required. If Vetassess recognises your BSc degree as equivalent to Australian Bachelor degree, you will be able to claim 15 points for education. 3. You will need to apply for a tourist visa for orals unless you are from a visa waived country. You will be able to use the AMSA letter & oral booking confirmation as supporting docs when applying for tourist visa. Cheers!
  2. Possibility for Ship Master occupation to return to the main list again in 2020...

  5. Hi Willboy, Since you have master CoC, you will be able to apply under ships master category for 489 ROL. I had claimed part of my CM experience along with master & shore based job experience & they were accepted. Not sure if 2nd Mate experience will be accepted or not. In the AMSA final assessment letter, it will be usually mentioned how many years of experience you have after the master CoC & that experience you should be able to claim for points. Cheers!

    489 visa Grant waiting 2018

    Hi Kunal, As far as I understand, form 80 is a mandatory document to submit. There is a specific tab in the attachment page in the ImmiAccount to submit this form. Pls check in your ImmiAccount. Cheers!

    Suggest to check “Actions” in your ImmiAccount home page & see if you need to submit medicals. Since you have applied after 1st July 2018, this action should be automatically there for you to complete...Cheers!

  12. New Occupation list released toady (Mar 11), no movement of ship master, still in the ROL. No other maritime occupations are returned in the list.
  13. Hi Sevenseas, In my opinion, it is very difficult to secure a job in Australia while living in offshore location unless you are highly connected and extremely lucky. You probably need to move to Australia first ... Cheers!
  14. Generally, offshore job prospects are a bit bleak last couple of years or so...however, heard from people that it's being picking up presently. You may keep checking seek.com to get an idea... Cheers!
