Notice of change of name, address, or nationality
You can use this form to notify AMSA of a change of name, address, or nationality connected with your ship registration.
Your address should be a residential address—we can also record a post office box as a postal address but this will not be seen on the registration certificate.
You may also need to provide additional information depending on the change required. For example:
- If your company name has changed, you will need to submit a copy of the ASIC certificate of registration on change of name.
- If your name has changed, you will need a copy of your marriage certificate or other document showing evidence of the name change.
- If you change nationality, you will need to show a passport or another immigration document. A change to a person or company's nationality may affect the vessel's eligibility to be registered. Please contact the Shipping Registration Office for further information.
