South Australia offers free schooling to dependents of the Subclass 457 and 482 visa


Many states in Australia are offering incentives to migrants to work and settle in regional areas. South Australia now has joined them too.

South Australia will be offering free schooling to dependents of the Subclass 457 and Subclass 482 visa attending public schools in regional areas. This exemption will be applicable to all eligible students studying in regional areas.

Earlier, Subclass 457 and 482 holders had to pay a student contribution fee. This was around $5,300 for primary students and $6,400 for high school students.

John Gardner, Education Minister of SA, said that the Govt. is trying to make working and living in regional areas more attractive to immigrants. This move will support businesses in regional areas to meet their skill shortages. This fee waiver is an incentive for foreign workers to settle in regional SA and contribute to the state’s economy.

South Australia hopes that this move will help local businesses grow. It will create more employment in regional areas, as per SBS News.

For the migrants, any savings that they can make is always positive. The move is sure to make living in regional South Australia more attractive to migrants.
