    Post enrol kid to school with visit visa

    Hi,

    Would appreciate if I could get information whether it is possible to enrol my kid into a local elementary school, if we enter NZ using visit visa?
    *whilst working on a work permit / obtaining work visa...

    Many thanks in advance...

    You can enrol your child in school while you are on a visit visa but you would have to pay international student rates . If you are on a work permit your child would be classed as a domestic student.

    Hi Motherbear.....

    Thank you for the info....

    I've checked the website and found the following

    quote
    Cost of Study in a New Zealand High School or Primary School

    The below costs are average and are for one years tuition fees.
    Registration (enrolment fee) Once only: NZ$260
    unquote

    I guess it is now clear for me

    You've been a great help - thank you!!!

    I must admit to not quite understanding their wording. I can't figure out if the $260 is paid each year or once only as a registration fee and the secondary school fees also have to be included, as I suspect. But it doesn't say how much for a Primary School. Maybe I'm not understanding it fully?

    * Secondary school fees are generally around NZ$10,000 a year.

    I am not sure what an elementary school is comparable to, but here are a couple of local Primary Schools that have their fees for international students given on their websites:
