Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme Review

Work Permits (UK) has reviewed the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme (SAWS), which allows overseas nationals to enter the UK and work in the agricultural industry to meet its demand for seasonal labour.

The main change that occurred is that the quota for 2003 has been increased to 25,000 places in light of the fact that the period during which the scheme operates has been extended to a full year. The work which participants are allowed to undertake has also been reviewed.

More information on the review and how the current scheme operates can be found on the Work Permits (UK) website.
