Fair point you didn't ask, but your dependent visa for the child would be denied immediately without parental approval on both sides.
I'm guessing the respondent thought it was worth mentioning as you wanted to find out as much as you could before committing any cash
I looked on a website and for the 482 visa. School fees are (but obviously may change) NSW $5,200 primary $6,200 HS, WA $4,000, SA $5,300 primary and $6,400 HS, Tasmania $7,500 and ACT seems to charge international fees for HS $12,500 years 7-10 and $13,900 for yrs 11 and 12.
You apply for a place at a public school when you arrive and are living in the catchment area - often you need a proof of living in the area if it's a really popular school.
I know you posted sometime ago but i'm a pharm tech too from north east and hoping to move to QLD with my son and partner.
Did you manage to submit a visa request? We can get sponsored off our family so can submit a visa 491 im just wondering if my qualifications are sufficient before paying for the skills assessment!
