New Seasonal Worker visa for non-EU citizens - pilot scheme
« on: October 12, 2018, 11:17:45 AM »
2,500 visas for non-EEA citizen migrant workers, for up to 6 months at a time.

"A two-year pilot to support UK farmers by allowing non-EU migrant workers to work on farms, then return after six months, has been announced by the Home Secretary and Environment Secretary."

"To be eligible for the pilot workers must be aged at least 18 years old on the date of application and be from outside of the European Union."

The pilot will commence in the spring of 2019, will run until the end of December 2020 and will be monitored closely by the Home Office and Defra.

"I am committed to having an immigration system that reduces migration to sustainable levels, supports all industry and ensures we welcome those who benefit Britain."
