UK farm worker visa scheme 2019

UK farm worker visa

UK farm worker visa is an interesting topic for Workers nowadays because work in the UK has been a dream for Indians and Pakistanis. A lot of subcontinent residences are already settled there and playing their role in the progress of the United Kingdom.

A few months ago, the UK Government launched a seasonal worker pilot scheme which aimed to bring 2,500 seasonal workers to the farms. Under this scheme, six months UK farm worker visa will be issued to the successful candidates.

It was announced that the UK farm worker Visa pilot scheme will allow workers from outside the EU to do seasonal farm work in the UK for up to six months. There will be a cap of 2,500 workers per year. So it is the best opportunity to work in the UK for low educated workers.

On the eve of the announcement of farm worker visa scheme, the home minister said that the government hoped that the pilot scheme would help in minimizing the farm labor shortages. He also said that an automated harvesting solution was not universally available, and hoped that the farm worker pilot scheme would support farmers during peak production times.

He explained that the UK seasonal work visa scheme would be reviewed and it will be determined how to support the long-term needs of the UK farming industry. He said that Govt will observe, how foreign workers work in the UK in this period.

The farmer unions in the UK reportedly welcomed the new UK farm worker visa scheme but warned that it was not ambitious enough, as more workers are needed on UK farms.

To qualify for the UK farm worker visa, the minimum age should be 18 years on the date of application. In addition, the scheme will only be open to workers from outside the European Union. No skill and language course is required for this job.

The UK Home Office said that the scheme will be started in the spring of 2019, and will be continued till December 2020. Now, this scheme has been started and common people are calling it UK farm worker visa 2019.

If we talk about wages, farm laborers earn an average of £7.98  an hour across the UK right now. The data show a minimum salary of £6.65 an hour – rising to £12.05 for top earners.

This program is similar to other seasonal programs (such as those in New Zealand and the US), where laborers are paid slightly more due to it being peak season, and may also be provided with accommodation.

On the other hand, it is a fact that above-mentioned salaries only apply to very basic labor positions, and the more advanced/technical worker may pay substantially more for work in the UK.

Latest Update for the UK form worker visa

Initially PRO Force Limited, An authorized company for UK farm worker visa scheme, started registration for the sack of checking candidates’ interest. A pro forma was given on the company official website for all non-EU countries.

Meanwhile, Second operating company Concordia limited announced that due to a limited quota of workers, they are unable to entertain the people from all around the world.  Company will consider candidates for UK farm worker visa only from Russia, Ukraine, and Moldova only. This announcement is still available on the official website of Concordia.

Now after some days, PRO Force Limited has also given a similar statement on their website. According to the company, they will work for a UK farm worker visa scheme only in Ukraine and Moldova for the first year.

Therefore, PRO force has promised to entertain candidates from other countries in case of fewer applications. They have explained that all data of candidates for UK farm worker visa is saved which may be used next year.

Comparison with Canada farm worker visa

Canada farm worker visa is very similar to the Uk farm worker visa due to the same requirements. Both are seasonal and for unskilled workers. Wages are also almost equivalent in this category in both countries.

When we talk about major difference, that may be clearly seen. As you know that Pakistanis are not eligible for Canada farm worker visa. In the same way, green passport holders are not entertained this year in UK farm worker visa scheme in spite of UK government announcement. ( Visa free countries for Pakistan )

Anyways, a chance is still there, as an authorized company for UK farm worker visa has promised to consider candidates from all non-EU countries in next season. So don’t leave hope, best of luck for the next time.
