It is treated like time spent in the U.S. You must have served on a vessel operated by the United States or a vessel registered in the United States and owned by U.S. citizens or a U.S. corporation.  In addition to including evidence of your service on this vessel, we encourage you to make a very short statement to address this. We provide the following suggested text. You may leave it or revise it to your preference.

(Except for persons performing ministerial functions, the N-470 must be approved before you have been out of the United States for one year.)
