Pacific Seasonal Worker Pilot Scheme

The Pacific Seasonal Worker Pilot Scheme concluded on 30 June 2012.

The Seasonal Worker Program started on 1 July 2012 building on the Pacific Seasonal Worker Pilot Scheme in contributing to the economic development of participating countries, while also offering Australian employers in the horticulture industry access to workers from eight Pacific island nations and Timor-Leste when they cannot find enough local labour to satisfy seasonal demand.
