Ex­ten­sion for work­ing hol­i­day­mak­ers

Kalgoorlie Miner - - NEWS - Can­berra

Vis­i­tors on work­ing hol­i­day visas will be able to work an ex­tra six months in some high-de­mand in­dus­tries in Aus­tralia’s north.

Im­mi­gra­tion Min­is­ter Pe­ter Dut­ton said that would ben­e­fit the highly sea­sonal agri­cul­ture and tourism in­dus­tries, as well as the aged and dis- abil­ity care, con­struc­tion and min­ing sec­tors.

“Be­yond giv­ing visa-hold­ers more op­tions when vis­it­ing and work­ing in Aus­tralia, this will also sup­port em­ploy­ers in the north seek­ing to at­tract and re­tain staff who are trained in their roles and keen to stay on for longer than six months,” he said. AAP
