    Ship Master Immigration and COR by AMSA

    Ok Thanks for that. In my situation, working overseas (outside Australia), is there any scope to be allowed to stay in Australia and pay tax on that income? I would have thought this may be seen as a commitment to the state also? Is there a visa class you think could be achievable given my, and my families circumstances?

    Hi @Marisawright , so how does the above work? How would someone require a 491 Visa priority if already living in Australia?

    Thanks for the information, will likely apply for the visa / EOI once in Australia on the visitor visa whilst continuing in my employment overseas. Hopefully being in WA, albeit as a tourist will aid the application. Cheers

    Ship Master Immigration and COR by AMSA

    Hi Paul @paulhand As per my post above, I take it my steps would be as follows; Skills Assessment, COR, EOI. Then just wait on WA govt handing out visas? Is there a long winded way with the family sponsorship route? Are you available for a consultation? Cheers in advance.

    Ship Master Immigration and COR by AMSA

    Hi Guys, quick query. My AMSA skills assessment currently underway, Canberra already have all documentation in hand. I am a British Ship Master, currently working on offshore vessels and not really intending to work in Australia immediately, planning to relocate with my partner & son. I plan to continue with my present employer out with Australia where I am quite happy. My partners sister(British full Australian resident) & my brother in law (Australian) live in Perth WA where we plan to relocate all going well. Is our profession still open for the 491 visa at this time either through Regional work list or family sponsorship? If not, how often does this status change and is it worthwhile travelling on the 12 month visitor visa until such times as things open. Any help / advice would be appreciated.
