Sea­sonal worker changes

The Advocate (Perth) - - OPINION -

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.”
