The Government does not currently plan reintroduce the scheme for temporary visas to poultry workers in 2022. We will however monitor the position closely.

Our points-based system allows for many roles in poultry production to be recruited via the Skilled Worker route, such as poultry processors, bird dressers, pluckers, trussers and butchers for all meats.
