Golden opportunity to Work in UK for Non-European Countries Citizens with Seasonal Farm Workers Visa. UK Government has decided to give farm workers visas to Non-European Citizens. It could be the great opportunity to work abroad by seasonal jobs in UK. A serious shortage of labour to work in fruit picking fields, farming and other food production sectors is being faced by after UK Brexit from European Union. Earlier this month, UK home office has announced that employers, farmers now would be able to recruit workers to work as farm workers and fruit pickers etc. Formerly UK farmers were relying on workers coming from European countries but now they need workers from non-European countries due to UK Brexit.
According to the new announcement, this pilot scheme for seasonal work visa will start from spring 2019 till the end of 2020. 2500 visas will be given every year. The National Farmers Union says that is the major victory that UK government has finally decided and taken this step. The National Farmers Union is demanding more than 10,000 workers but UK immigration said that this scheme will run for two years on trial bases. Foreign workers will receive 6 months’ temporary work visas. UK home office, environment, food and rural department will monitor how well this scheme will work and its results. They are afraid that workers will overstay in the country after finishing their visas and won’t go back to their home country, so they want to observe the results. After two years’ trial period, the annual number of imported workers and duration of farm workers visa may be increased but currently only 2500 applicants will have chance to workabroad in UK.
In fact, UK government is very serious about this program because UK’s food sectors have sale of more than 70 billion pounds. And farmers are now facing huge shortage of labor especially in the harvesting season. There is a large number of available seasonal jobs which are lying vacant. They complained that a large quantity of fruit got rotten due to lack of workers to pick fruit. So more UK work visas should be given.
This scheme is specifically started for non-European countries. Citizen of European countries won’t be able to apply these visas. So, people from Asian, African and other countries can apply in this scheme. As mentioned above, this type of UK work permit system will be launched in coming march and details of application process will be revealed near March 2019. However, as this scheme is for employers help, so employers will be able to recruit and hire workers from any country. It means you have to contact employers/farmers/farming companies to find a job and job offer for you. It will be first and foremost requirement of this work visa. Normally, there is not a special requirement of education/ training/ experience to work in these sectors but still you should be able to speak Basic level English to communicate with employer.
