Dear All

We are a family with two kids of 6 years and 6 month old. Planning to get study visa for 3 years for undergraduate course in ECU, Perth and dependent visa for spouse and kids.

The intake will be in July 2012 and will fly to Perth in May or June 2012.

Want to know what will be current monthly cost of living. A normal minimum possible living not a luxarious life.

Monthly Apartment Rent with 1 Bed plus living room.
Monthly Utility Bills, Electricity, Water, Gas
Monthly Grocery just for normal dishes
Local Travelling Expense

Expected monthly income for
Independent Financial Accountant
Computer Network Engineer

Would like to contact people in same criteria so we can meet and plan together. I am living in Faisalabad City. Can catch me at SkyPe with ID cisfsd

Dear cisfsd;

As far as cost of living is concerned,you would be consuming in the range of 2.5K to 3K - hinging on your life style though.

Please check following for your residential arrangement:

Welcome to the Australian Homestay Network - Homestay Network

Best luck!

My Friend,


i will honestly advcie you to come alone and bring your family after some months. This will help you to settle in the Perth in a better way. Also you are coming on Student visa so kindly make sure about ur income b/c by law students are allowed to work 20 hours/week (i am assuming this only apply all over the australia).

Do u have any friends in Perth?

Dear Hassan,


It's really help to takes the thing in sustainable manner. If you live alone you can bear the tough time alone and family will not suffer as well as not adding financial constraint. i also come alone in Melbourne and InshALLAH bring my family next six months. Control my expenses and looking for suitable option for renting, housing etc.

My Friend,

it's not possible, nobody will hire in your field unless u will be on PR or AU Citizen.
Company will get hefty penalty while hiring people on students visa.

Problems of living abroad

Settling into a new place is a tough job. Homesickeness is one thing that really affects you especially if you are coming alone. And the only way that keeps you going is to stay in touch with family back home. If you wish to call Pakistan absolutely unlimited, on super cheap call rates, try vopium's call pakistan package!
