Valuable conversations to come from Navigating Visa Pathways Workshops

This week, DairyTas took to the road with Chris and Sue from the Department of Home Affairs, Mike and Namrata from the Department of State Growth and Terri from The Pacific Australia Labour Mobility (PALM) scheme.

The Navigating Visa Pathways Workshop was held at Barnbougle, Deloraine Bowls Club and Tall Timbers for Tasmanian dairy farmers to learn about the various pathways they can explore for overseas workers. The Q & A time was found to be highly valuable for farmers, both employees and employers. To have questions answered face to face, was a great opportunity as they explore the pathways most suited to their business and future goals. 


The time the presenters spent chatting with farmers and learning about the Tasmanian dairy industry was much appreciated by all who attended. DairyTas are very thankful for the time that Chris, Sue, Mike, Namrata and Terri spent on the road for us this week, and wish to thank them for their presentations and interest in our industry.
