Hello,

This is my very first topic and I hope to receive some info that can put my mind at ease.

We are a family of 4 (2 kids) and are working on a migration plan to Adelaide, SA under the sub class via 489 which does not give similar benefits of a 189 or 190 visa category, i.e. education and health benefits.



My question's and concerns are:

- How expensive would schooling and health cover be?

- Can I enroll my children in a public school or does it only have to be a private school?

- What would the health coverage or insurance take care of, only doctors consultations and or medications?



Any additional info that you feel can be of help would be appreciated.



Thank you.

Private schools can be cheaper and or more expensive then the public ones. Here is the SA public school international student fees for primary students.

Health coverage really depends on the level of your insurance or your eligibility under the Medicare scheme. My insurance covers all hospital admissions, specialists, dental, basically everything - it costs $60/week for 2 of us. My Medicare rights are fairly comprehensive due to my visa and reciprocal agreements.

Note the fee schedule for course fees also gives a guide of other costs including student Heath insurance (600/year)
