Over recent years there have been major changes to the legislation in this area as the government has sought to ensure that all foreign workers in this area have the correct work rights and that there is no disadvantage to Australians working in this sector.
This affects those companies which operate vessels in Australia’s Maritime waters either within the Migration zone or external to the Migration zone.
There are a number of visas which may be used in this sector including the sub class 482, the Maritime Crew Visa or the short term business entry visas (including the sub class 400 visa). The choice between these instruments is often a critical decision for companies.
There has also been additional legislation introduced as the Federal Government have sought to define the type of work depending on its relationship to Australian resource projects.
This is a complex area and if your company is involved in the offshore resources sector and is seeking to use the services of foreign workers to complete contracts they you should seek immediate assistance from your consultant at Visa Solutions Australia.
Engaging with Visa Solutions Australia was one of the best decisions we have made since starting our operations in Australia. Expanding from the UK into Australia it was vital that we established a team who could carry our culture and expertise forward which sets us apart from our competition. They carry the same values as ourselves as they certainly put the customer first by providing timely, honest and clear advice meaning they have become a strategic partner for Waterstons The team at VSA have went above and beyond and we will be continuing our working relationship for years to come.
Very many thanks for this partner visa. A huge surprise at how quick this has been (just over three months after initial submission) and especially getting permanent residency as well as temporary when I didn't even realise we had gone to that stage yet!! I've been delighted with the service you and Nathalie have provided, as before with my visitor visas. Your considerable help and guidance have been invaluable, from our initial meeting in Como right through to your congratulatory phone call today. If we'd tried to apply for the visa without your involvement I'm sure we would still be struggling to make sense of what was required. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone with a visa requirement and will use you again if and when I need any further help.
Dan, I would like to thank you and your team on behalf of Alumni for the great support we have received from Visa Solutions, particularly working under rushed conditions during the holiday period. Nathalie and Lina were very patient and professional throughout in dealing with our changing circumstances and multiple requests for information and support. We would recommend Visa Solutions to others without hesitation, and are looking forward to a successful conclusion for our one remaining application.
Thanks VSA – sounds like a win-win all round! I would like to add that this outcome could not have been achieved without your attention in this matter, firstly in your initial follow-up; and then in the detailed documents and response when requested yesterday. This is an example of the professionalism which enhances our working relationship with RMAs, and ultimately benefits our clients. Thanks again.
Firstly, me and my family are very grateful for the work and effort you extended to me during the period of the processing our Residence Visa. From the initial contact, I had been assisted wisely on the options that I have to take up to the very challenging part of securing my Chinese Police Clearance, where I described it as if I was pressed against the wall already. You were always there when I needed most of your assistance. You all put in extra effort to assist and guide me through till the goal of our visa was achieved and that makes your service a very special one.
Thanks VSA team! Excellent work and thanks for informing us immediately. Thanks for your effort all. Cheers!
VSA were a joy to work with during my migration to Australia. During the start they were kind enough to give us an understanding of the application process and the options available to us. With VSA's help I got my visa on time and without any complications!
VSA have helped me immensely, to fulfil my dream of migrating to Australia. Working with them made the entire experience smooth, which is why I also ended up working with VSA for my partners fiancé visa.
The process is long and throughout I asked a lot of detailed questions which were answered promptly and my dedicated agent and support staff provided great guidance throughout this journey. l was provided with accurate information in a timely fashion and guidance where required. When ever I needed support my agent was on hand to help out, I could rely on my agent. My experience was, Visa Solutions has a great support team and is professionally managed. I have no reservations in recommending Visa Solutions, money well spent and suggest a chat with them to see if they can help.
You have gone above and beyond in trying to help us in our situation. We can never thank you enough, you are wonderful people and we feel overwhelmed by your kindness.
Thank you again for your excellent service and support. In my opinion you went above and beyond the norm.
Have arrived in Perth last week for my course. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for helping me getting the visa.
I would like to thank you deeply VSA for your help and effort...it was wonderful meeting you all and witnessing true professionals at work.
Thanks so much to the VSA team. You made us so happy.
A big thanks to all the team at Visa Solutions. It's been almost two years since I first contacted the Perth office and received lots of valuable advice over the phone. I had no hesitation in using your services when the time arose, and very glad that we did. Very happy with your services and putting up with our many questions.
