    187 Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Visa Questions

    Marine Engineer (Occupation code 231212) is also open in NT under DAMA agreement.
  3. 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!

    Mohammed, if you have a CO contact for medical, you may loose another 1.5-3 months for the grant. Pls go through this link & screenshot for the info - https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/meeting-our-requirements/health/who-needs-health-examinations

    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!

  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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!

    Dear all, I have got my 489 grant on 15 Jan 2019. Wishing for a quick grant for everyone waiting.. Cheers!
  22. Dear all, I have received my 489 visa grant visa state nomination (Tasmania) in Ships Master occupation on 15 Jan 2019. Anyone from the group is in Tasmania currently or planning to move to Tasmania? Will be delighted to get connected. Cheers!
  23. Depends on your circumstances, if you are keen, it's a good idea to clear COR Orals and be ready to grab any opportunity. However, please keep in mind the monitory commitments required in the process...it does not come cheap!
  24. Ship's Master and Ship's Engineer occupations are included in the NT DAMA II http://newsroom.nt.gov.au/mediaRelease/28596 DAMA II Occupation list 1 Jan 2019.docx
