Story: South Pacific economic relations

Recognised Seasonal Employer scheme for Pacific workers

Recognised Seasonal Employer scheme for Pacific workers

The Recognised Seasonal Employer scheme allows groups of workers from the Pacific Islands to work on special seven-month visas in New Zealand orchards and vineyards. They work during the busiest periods of harvesting and pruning, when local labour is often in short supply. These brochures, produced by New Zealand's Department of Labour, explain the scheme in several Pacific Islands languages.
