Pacific Labour Mobility Consultation

Thank you for your interest in the Australian Government’s consultations on options for further enhancing Australia’s highly successful Pacific labour mobility initiatives: the Seasonal Worker Programme (SWP) and the Pacific Labour Scheme (PLS). A discussion paper outlining key questions and issues helped to inform the consultations.

Submissions have now closed. We thank stakeholders for their feedback and suggestions on how we can improve, align and streamline the two programs.

The consultation summary provides an overview of key themes raised by stakeholders. Written submissions and website responses have also been published on this webpage, where permission has been given.

In response to the feedback received during consultations, the Australian Government has announced a package of first stage reforms to the programs. A new integrated website for the two programs has been launched which provides further detail on the changes.
