You can enrol your school-aged children in public or private schools, provided the school has the capacity to accept them. Schools normally require you to pay international tuition fees. These fees will be listed on your Confirmation of Placement (CoP) letter. Before you arrive, you will need to obtain a visa for your children from the Department of Home Affairs (DHA).
You can read more on our ‘Bringing your family‘ page.
