Recognising overseas licences and working in Australia
Will CASA recognise overseas qualifications?
CASA will continue to recognise overseas qualifications, however, an assessment of competencies will need to be carried out by a Registered Organisation in Australia to become licensed in Australia. CASA will not be issuing ratings for any aircraft that are not on the Australian register.
Although based on the European system, the new CASR Part 66 licence will not automatically be recognised in Europe, nor will European Aviation Safety Agency licences be automatically recognised in Australia.
Applications under the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Agreement will result in the issue of a CASR Part 66 licence, including limitations where appropriate.
