A total of 19 foreign nationals have been detained by the Immigation and Border Protection department at Shepparton.
The Minister, Senator Michaelia Cash, said a suspected illegal labour hire contractor was among 19 foreign nationals located working illegally on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Senator Cash said compliance officers found 12 Malaysians and seven Indians during operations targeting Victoria’s food bowl at Shepparton.
‘‘While some had no visa, others were working in breach of their visa conditions and all of them have been transferred to a detention facility in Adelaide pending their removal from Australia.’’
Senator Cash said it was essential that employers and contractors were aware they face fines and civil penalties for allowing or referring people to work illegally.
Employers can check the visa details of non-citizens using the Visa Entitlement Verification Online tool on the DIBPs website.
People with information about illegal workers or visa overstayers can call the Immigration Dob-in Line on 1800 009 623.
