The move has won in-principle support from the National Farmers' Federation, even if it is still demanding a fully fledged agricultural visa.

Australia is in discussions about expanding the work and holiday visa to people from India, Brazil, Mexico, the Philippines, Switzerland, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Andorra, Monaco and Mongolia.

Any places made available to backpackers from these nations would be in addition to the existing caps for other nations.
