Health insurance

You are responsible for all your health costs while you are in Australia. You will not be covered by Australia's national health scheme (Medicare) unless your country has a reciprocal health care agreement with Australia. We recommend that you take out health insurance each time you travel to Australia.

The visa


About this visa

The Maritime Crew visa (subclass 988) is a temporary visa for crew who are employed on non-military ships on international voyages to Australia. You cannot use this visa to come to Australia and stay here. You cannot work in Australia except for work that meets the normal operational requirements of your ship. If someone lodges a visa application for you, they must have your permission and provide only accurate information about you. If you apply using a paper form, you must sign the form yourself, even if someone else lodges it for you.


What this visa lets you do

This visa allows you to:

  • • enter Australia by sea as an articled member of a ship's crew.
  • • Do work that meets the normal operational requirements of your ship while you are in Australia.

If you enter Australia by air to join a ship, you will need another visa to enter, and you will also need a Maritime Crew visa to join your ship.


How long your visa lasts


The Maritime Crew visa (subclass 988) lasts for three years.

Your Maritime Crew visa (subclass 988) will end if:

  • • while in Australia, you do work other than to meet the usual operational requirements of the ship
  • • you arrive in Australia by air on a Transit visa, hold no other visa (other than a Maritime Crew visa) and do not sign on to your ship within five days
  • • you arrive in Australia on any other type of visa (other than a Maritime Crew visa) and that visa ends or is cancelled
  • • you sign off your ship and you do not leave Australia within five days, apply for another type of visa, or sign on to another non-military ship in that time
  • • You leave a vessel on arriving in Australia without being immigration cleared by the Department of Home Affairs (the Department).
  • • The Department deems or declares your ship to be ‘imported' and you do not leave Australia within five days, obtain another type of visa or sign on to another non-military ship in that time.

If compelling reasons beyond your control prevent you leaving Australia within the five-day period, contact us to ask for an extension while your Maritime Crew visa is still valid.


Family

Members of your family unit (that is, your partner (married or de facto) and dependent children) can apply for Maritime Crew visas if they travel on the same ship as you, if permission has been granted by the vessel master. They must lodge separate application forms.


The Maritime Crew visa held by your partner or dependent child will end if:

  • • they work while in Australia
  • • your Maritime Crew visa ends
  • • they enter Australia on a ship but without you and hold no valid visa other than the Maritime Crew visa
  • • They cease to accompany you and do not leave Australia or obtain another suitable visa.

From 19 November 2016, a member of the family unit will be limited to the Maritime Crew Visa holder’s spouse, de facto partner or dependent children under 23 years of age (and dependent children with a medically accepted disability

  • • If you sign off your ship, you must do one of the following within five days:
    • • leave Australia
    • • obtain another type of visa
