SOURCING EMPLOYEES DURING COVID-19 BORDER CONTROLS
The COVID-19 border controls add steps to overseas and interstate recruitment. If an individual wants to come into WA from overseas they must meet requirements of both the Australian Government and the WA Government. These are two separate processes managed by two different agencies, and are the responsibility of the applicant.
Employees permitted to enter WA will very likely require 14 days of self-quarantine in an adequate facility. Businesses should consider this in their workforce planning.
It is recommended that eligibility for entry is checked and as much pre-approval as possible is undertaken before flights are booked.
Immigration agents should be familiar with requirements for entry from overseas but you should check they have factored in the WA specific rules.
This Workforce Planning document from DPIRD contains useful information on registering employment opportunities with Jobs in Ag.
