Can I move to a long-term PALM visa from a seasonal visa?
- Seasonal workers may be eligible to apply for a long-term PALM scheme visa in Australia if they are transitioning to a long-term employment contract under the PALM scheme.
- Subclass 408 visa holders are not eligible to apply.
- Workers currently holding an SWP visa who are employed in seasonal placements may be offered and move to a long-term PLS placement if there is an ongoing, year-round (non-seasonal) role available and the employer has signed the PLS deed. This may be in a higher-skilled position.
