Family accompaniment pilot - for workers

What is the family accompaniment pilot?


The family accompaniment pilot will offer up to 200 long-term Pacific Australia Labour Mobility (PALM) scheme workers the opportunity to bring their families to Australia.

There will be 2 selection processes run to select the participants in the pilot. The first selection process has now closed.

A second selection process will be run later in 2024 and may include additional countries.

To participate, employers, workers and families must meet certain eligibility criteria.
