    I have lived in different parts of the USA, and known many who live in the PI or Thailand. It doesn’t matter, you can live anywhere. Just go stay in whatever city when you are in the hall looking for work, stay at an airbnb or whatever.

    3 dudes on my current ship are doing this. 1 dude lives in Europe, 1 dude lives in Indonesia, 1 dude lives in the Philippines. If you’re going to do this, you’ll have better luck if you’re unlicensed and are a member of SUP as their shipping rules make it a lot easier than the SIU’s.

    Depends on your rating, I’ve only known of 2 companies that employ foreign sailors, Canyon Offshore and Helix Energy Solutions.

    Canyon is owned by Helix.

    Cal Dive (now out of business) used to.
