I have been in the ACT since Nov 2010 on a 457 visa and my children do not need to pay international school fees!!! We are here on a 457 visa but to be honest you need to check that your skills code(DIAC – code I think) is on the shortage list, if that is the case then you do not pay fees.

I totally disagree with the NSW and ACT on this policy. Some 457 visa holders have almost 100% education subsidy paid in their countries to come and work in Australia where we pay taxes to Australia and at the same time contribute to develop the economy of Australia. It is totally unfair for us. Hwy other states allow subsidy whilst not these stated.

Thanks for allowing me to air my comment.
