Our borders are open and ALA is ready to go! This last week has seen not only the Queensland domestic border open but has also seen the ‘Sunshine State’ open to quarantine-free international travel for vaccinated people.
With Queensland about to enter its busiest time of the year for farm work, fruit picking and other major harvests, this is great news for the agriculture industry and the thousands of farmers who are eagerly awaiting more workers.
Even better, is the cash incentive being offered to students and backpackers who come to Australia over the next few months. This will see eligible working holiday-maker visa holders who arrive within the next 12 weeks receiving a $600 cash rebate!
Here’s what you need to know about coming to Queensland:
- You must be fully vaccinated (double dosed) and have a negative Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) within 24 hours before entering the country to qualify for quarantine free entry
- Unvaccinated people will be required to quarantine for two weeks (at their own expense) regardless of whether they return negative RAT and PCR Covid-19 tests
Right now, there is a huge amount of jobs in Queensland and all over Australia and our friendly team at Agri Labour Australia is ready to connect you with the best jobs while also doing our best to help you reach your travel goals #winnning!
From the rainforests and islands of the tropical north, down to the central and southern coasts where the beaches are plenty or out west where the sunsets are like no other, wherever you go in Queensland there’s rewarding farm work to be had in a location that’s sure to tick your dream destination.
There’s no time to waste! Get yourself vaccinated, grab your passport and your friends and jump on a plane to one of the world’s most sought after to work, travel and play!
