    Default Understanding visa conditions

    This is for a friend of mine, who's working under a work visa, stating "The holder may only work as Mechanical Engineer for XYZ Ltd".

    Sometimes he has to undertake site visits to provide engineering supports relating to drawings, designs, etc.
    He's wondering what else he's allowed to do while being on sites.

    For example, can he by himself dis-assemble a machine to inspect?
    After having found a faulty part, can he replace that part?

    Or he has to ask for a mechanical fitter help?

    Can someone please advise?

    INDUSTRIAL, MECHANICAL AND PRODUCTION ENGINEERS design, organise and oversee the construction, operation and maintenance of mechanical and process plant and installations, establish programs for the coordination of manufacturing activities, and ensure usage of resources is cost effective.

    233512 MECHANICAL ENGINEER
    Plans, designs, organises and oversees the assembly, erection, operation and maintenance of mechanical and process plant and installations.
    This is the ANZSCO job description. What your friend is called upon to do for his job sounds as though it is absolutely in line with it, if he is doing it on a problem-solving basis from time to time - overseeing operation and maintenance. If he were to find that anyone expected him to do nothing but, that would be a different job, not in line with the visa.
