Dairy Labour Agreement workers can access permanent residency pathway


Dairy labour agreement workers are now able to access permanent residency pathway.

On 1 April 2019, the Dairy Industry Template Labour Agreement was amended to provide a pathway to permanent residency for overseas workers who have been engaged under a Labour Agreement for a period of at least 3 years.

Effective immediately, existing Labour Agreement holders need to seek a variation to their agreements to sponsor current Subclass 457 or TSS 482 visa holders for an Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) (subclass 186) visa.

You will need to contact the Labour Agreement section and request a form to vary your Labour Agreement: [email protected]
