    @rainman, mahirap i-gauge . But if you are holding 457 visa hindi ata libre schooling pag ganun pero sa iba state libre kahit 457 visa holder. Depende talaga sa lifestyle pero kung kami family of four kakayanin namin yan :)

    School fees ang nakikita ko issue dito.

    @TasBurrfoot yup tight nga

    @rainman malayo naman kayo sa Sydney, tama si tasburrfoot, mga $350 ang rent. TIpid mode lang. Si misi mo pwede naman hanap ng casual work ?

    Thank you for all the replies. Would it be too tight ? My wife will try to find work but we need to prioritize the children. The work location is outside of Sydney.. Would the cost of living be less?

    It will be tight. I suggest check the cost of public and private school for your kids. In our case it is cheaper to send the kids to private rather than public on 457 visa. Every state is different in AU. Consider cost of health insurance, housing, food, utility bills and transportation. Look for a house close to school (walking distance)....

    @merc2013 nabasa Ko Sa ibang thread cheaper daw to send the kids to systemic catholic school. May I know how much are the fees per student per month? Our plan is I go first and then after 6 months or less my wife and children will follow. Sayang Ksi din yun opportunity and I heard of a lot of good things about Australia

    @rainman good idea yung 6months ikaw muna sa nsw, then apply ka na ng pr while on 457 visa para by the time na susunod na sila, maximise mo benefits sa school fees

    55k per annum would be $796 per week kung kasama na sa 55k mo yung superannuation, if not $855 per week. i would suggest na mauna ka na and settle here first.. mag ipon ng konti before sumunod si wife and kid mo.. para atleast di kayong tatlo yung tight ang budget pagdating dito.

    $350-$400 yung bahay outside sydney metro. so half na agad nung net mo.. then you need to pay insurance pa which is required sa 457 visa probably $200pm.

    Hi there,
    Kami ay family of 5, both working kami ni hubby. Temp visa din dati pero naka survive naman. nakakaipon kahit may loan na car. Advantage kung pareho my work.
