North Sea oil worker in Australia question

Recommended Posts

Guest ArizonaOz

I live in the United States and we have a show called House Hunters International. One show was about a North Sea oil worker who moved to Australia with his wife and kids.

 

With this description I wonder if anyone knows which type of Visa he used or if Australia makes a special exception for high paid workers.

 

A) He was a North Sea oil worker based in Scotland. I believe he was an engineer.

B) He worked 6 months out of the year in Scotland and had 6 months off.

C) He moved his family to a vacation town north of Brisbane.

D) After the move his family lived in Australia year round.

E) The engineer kept his job in Scotland. He worked 6 months in the North Sea and spent the other six months with his family in Australia.

 

I don't think he came in as a skilled migrant because he never intended to get a job in Australia. It got me wondering if Australia allows high paid workers to immigrate to it's shores. Is there a special visa for that?

 

Thanks for any input!

A lot of merchant seamen do the same. However usually they are married to an Australian and therefore they get citizenship. I have not hear of anyone getting an actual visa to do it as tax would not be paid in this country.

Can you recommend a migration expert? I'm not ready to move but I need to spend a few minutes with an expert to get my game plan ready.

 

Thanks!
