Migration Opportunity for Farmworkers
Sponsorship Opportunity for Horticultural Farmworkers
Horticulture farmers around Australia will now receive more support to resolve labor shortages with the signing of a new Horticulture Industry Labour Agreement. The Horticulture Industry Labour Agreement follows the success of labour agreements in other industries such as the dairy, meat and pork industry.
It also complements existing migration programmes to support regional employers and communities, including the Working Holiday Maker Programme, Seasonal Worker Programme, the Pacific Labour Scheme and Designated Area Migration Agreements (DAMAs).
🔹 From 1 January 2020, the Department of Home Affairs allows horticultural employers to submit an application to sponsor a migrant worker to come to Australia and fill one of the 31 approved occupations listed under the Labour Agreement.
