The Scott Morrison Government is planning to introduce new Agriculture Visa in Australia. The demand for specialized visa for Agricultural purposes has been growing in Australia to meet the labour requirement.
The existing program called Seasonal Work Incentives Trial that is 2 year program has up till now invited only 333 people. The immigration year will end in six months and still 7,600 places are left to be filled. In these two years, the intake has only been around 4 or 5 percent.
Ben Rogers, National Farmers Federation Member has reckoned the program a failure stating the reason of local workers not willing to take harvest jobs.
Despite of benefits like cash incentives of $5,000 to people employed in harvest jobs, there is still requirement of many migrants to settle for harvest jobs.
The Agricultural visa allows visa holders to work in regional areas for more than 6 months. However, they can get an extra year if they took up farm jobs. The seasonal workers visa allowed Pacific workers to work in Australian farms for 3 months.
However, none of the above mentioned visa changes were able to address the challenges of the harvest seasons. This has resulted in the rise of demand for a new Agriculture Visa in Australia. Also, The National Farmers Federation also agreed that a long-term solution was needed to curb the Agriculture labour shortage, as per ABC News.
The Australian Government has asked farmers to register their needs with the National Harvest Labour Information Service to help the government identify the shortage areas. The government will then tailor a new agriculture visa around these shortage areas.
Thus, Australia offers a many PR programs in every category for the migrants willing to settle in the country on permanent basis. The applicants may select the best popular visa programs for your ultimate settlement. Apart from Agriculture Visa, you have permanent residency solutions under General Skill Migration Program, Family Sponsorship Programs and Business Investor Programs.
