The Pacific Australia Labour Mobility (PALM) scheme is the Australian Government's new, streamlined approach to its highly valued Pacific Labour Mobility initiatives.

The PALM scheme allows eligible employers to recruit workers from nine Pacific island countries and Timor-Leste when there are not enough Australian workers available.

There are two initiatives in the PALM scheme: the Seasonal Worker Programme (SWP) for jobs up to nine months and the Pacific Labour Scheme (PLS) for jobs between one and three years.
