According to DIBP, new visa arrangements came into effect on 31 March 2015. These affects non-citizens other than permanent residents intending to work in Australia's offshore oil and gas industry.

People intending to work on resources installations should hold either a Subclass 457 Temporary Work (Skilled) visa or a Subclass 400 Temporary Work (Short Stay Activity) visa.

People who are participating in, or supporting, an offshore resources activity from a vessel will be granted the Special Purpose Visa by operation of law.

    I am Vimal Vijayan working for Oil & Gas company as a Underwater Inspection Engineer for subsea platforms and pipelines. I work on offshore diving vessels and would like to get more information regarding the Special Purpose visa for offshore resource activity from a vessel. I have a potential offer in Australian water and will appreciate if you can advise and assist me with more information.

    Regards,
