Peak agricultural bodies are welcoming the Federal Government’s decision to introduce a new agriculture worker Visa in Australia in a bid to boost labour shortages across the sector.
The new visa allows foreigners sourced from ten Southeast Asian nations to work on Australian farms, as well as in forestry, meat-processing, and fisheries by the end of September 2021. Current, there is no limit on the number of overseas workers that can apply.
Over the last number of months, the sector has been crying out for a visa to this effect. A statement from Deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce reads “it will give regional Australia the workers they need to get produce to plates in Australia, as well as in our export markets”
