How to apply

 

The Pacific Australia Labour Mobility (PALM) scheme gives Pacific island and Timor-Leste workers an opportunity access a range of seasonal and longer-term jobs in Australia through their governments' labour sending units (LSUs).

All workers can gain valuable skills, experience and income to take back to their families and communities.

To participate, workers will need to check their eligibility, contact their LSU and be able to obtain a valid visa.
