Age restrictions lifted for seasonal workers program

The Australian government has made amendments to its Seasonal Worker Program, making it easier for older Pacific Islanders to sign up for it.

From January 2014, workers over the age of 45 will also be able to participate in the program.

ban will also be lifted on workers who have already completed work under the New Zealand seasonal worker scheme.

The Commissioner of Labour for Vanuatu Lionel Kaluat says Australia has much to gain from older Pacific Islanders as they are more "more productive, more disciplined" at an older age.

"For Pacific Islands, we tend to become more mature and stronger at that particular age so we can do more work," he said.
