Firstly, You cant claim nothing even medicare before getting Permanent Resident, allowance and aids are for those who needs support for short period of time however it is not an advantages of Permanent Resident.
Managing self funds and building carriers may helps you.
I am posting this here because i find a large number of existing 489 holders active here, apologies if i am breaking any forum rules(sorry admin, i am unable to find active 489'ers !!).
My family (2adults+Infant) has been granted 489 visa recently and is moving soon. We understand that there is no assistance from government for child care etc.
Can someone on 489 tell us
1. Cost for child minding/child care for 489, (as the rebate is applicable to only permanent residents) - We are both qualified, skilled individuals and expect to find work, but what are the costs for non-residents? [i came across a blog that says 60-100/Day for a 9-5 session, but wanted to know the ground reality].
2. Is the new arrival waiting period applicable for 887 as well? [i know its 2 years before you receive any kind of support, but i came across a comment that says '887 is granted medicare,FTB,Child care B, CC rebate etc but not Newstart allowance or Sickness allowance']. Please comment
