Does the PALM scheme replace the SWP and the PLS?
- The SWP and the PLS will be consolidated into the single PALM scheme. The SWP and PLS will continue to operate as 2 separate programs under the PALM scheme.
- Changes will be introduced in stages, with some features of the new scheme to commence on 4 April 2022, such as the new, more flexible visa. Other program settings will be implemented in mid-2022.
