The Immigration department of Australia is planning to extend the Working Holidaymaker Program to India and other 13 countries. The extension will help address the labour crunch that is troubling the agriculture sector.
Jaswinder Singh Mavi, a farmer from Griffith, says that hiring labour for his 300 acre orange farm is a continuous cause of worry due to shortage labour market shortage. He says many times he had to let the unpicked fruit rot due to scarcity of labours.
To deal with this uninterrupted problem, the Farmers Federation of Australia has been demanding a separate Agriculture Visa. However, the Australian Government is yet to announce one.
The extension program has brought cheer to Australian farmers who can now hire skilled farmers to Australia.
Mr. Mavi says that his business will benefit once the program becomes effective. A lot of people from Punjab wish to work on Australian farms. He says that the inclusion of India in the Working Holidaymaker Program will be a game changer for them, as quoted by SBS News.
Indian workers have the right attitude to work on Australian farms. However, Indian workers would need re-skilling to work on Australian farms.
The other farmer owner Mr. Sidhu says that he trains backpackers for at least 3 weeks but when they leave after just a couple of months, it drains his resources. However, including countries like India and Brazil will help address the labour crunch.
Applicants applying for Australian immigration must meet minimum requirements like secondary education and English skills.
However, a vegetable farmer from Victoria, Chanamat Singh says that English skills should not be a barrier for someone to get this visa. He says that he looking for workers with farming skills and not English.

In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
