Seasonal worker changes
THE Federal Government will introduce a multi-entry visa to the Seasonal Worker Program, to be phased in from July 1, 2018.
Pearce MHR Christian Porter said it would offer greater flexibility in the granting of visas and pilot new ways to lower upfront costs for employers.
“These measures will greatly increase flexibility and support within the program,” he said.
“Where there are no local workers available, these changes... will assist employers seeking access to a seasonal workforce.”
