How is the Pacific Engagement Visa (PEV) different to the PALM scheme?

The Pacific Engagement Visa (PEV) is a new permanent resident visa program for participating countries across the Pacific and Timor-Leste, commencing in July 2023. It is aimed at building greater people, cultural, business, and educational links between Australia and the Pacific.

The PALM scheme is a temporary migration program that will continue to help meet workforce shortages in rural and regional Australia, support the economic development of Pacific countries, and build skills for when workers return home.
