Australian Residents do not qualify for a control permit (aka cruising permit)
Kiwi (or any other nationality) Residents DO qualify...
PS: Thx for the link, that has some very useful info
Nationality and Residency are two separate things.
I'm a Kiwi. I was an Australian resident for several years ( i.e. rented a house there, worked there, paid taxes
there). Now I am not. I am currently a PNG Resident.
When I was resident in Australia
, I could not get a control permit.
When I sail to Australia
now from PNG, I can get a control permit.
If I advertise my boat for sale
in Australia, I can't get a control permit and if I hold one at the time I advertise the boat, it immediately becomes void.
