Labour Mobility Support Map

Labour Mobility

WDPTL supports the Government of Timor-Leste (GoTL) to more effectively deliver Australian Labour Mobility programs; the Seasonal Worker Program (SWP) and the Pacific Labour Scheme (PLS). The aim is for GoTL to provide more jobs for Timorese, enhanced skills for workers and pathways for returned workers to start businesses, share skills and gain employment (reintegration). This support is provided to the Secretariat of State for Training and Employment (SEFOPE) through its Direccao Nacional Emprego Exterior (National Directorate of Overseas Employment) or DNEE.

DNEE is responsible for promoting and managing programs for placing Timorese workers in labour markets abroad. This overseas work, known as labour mobility, is a crucial part of Timor-Leste’s employment and economic goals under the current government and in post COVID-19 economic development plans. Each worker who travels to Australia typically saves or remits more than $5000 USD per 6 month job, income that is used for family education, housing, healthcare and small business start ups in often rural Timor-Leste communities.

All information about DNEE and Australia Labour Mobility in Timor-Leste, including how to register as a worker can be found at the following website.
