Backpackers careful about returning to Australia

The Australian government has re-opened the international border to backpackers, but it seems the farming industry has some work to do to entice travellers back to its workforce. Backpackers coming to Australia on a 417 working holiday visa can enter NSW, the ACT and Victoria without quarantining if they meet strict criteria.

Given COVID-19 is raging again in Europe, farmers are hoping travellers will come to Australia in droves.

According to Chris Stillard, chair of the NSW Farmers Workplace Relations Committee, there was a severe labor shortage in agriculture. He said Australia had 110,000 fewer travellers in the country and he wanted the government to process the visa applications as quickly as possible.
