Oz on a NZ passport

(4 Posts)

I'm sure you are right re Uni Fees. Unfortunately it seems that the Oz govt is eroding the rights of NZers in Oz. I believe that you need private healthcare and have no access to benefits as a NZer should you need them.

It is a shame as when I lived there we were treated as Aussies in all but name

Hi I have friends who are in aus on nz passports. They have no problems with school and have reciprocal healthcare. they will apply for aus citizenship in 2 years time and then they have no future issues.

We are currently in NZ and all hold NZ and UK passports. I am pretty certain that we can work in OZ with no problem. Does anybody know however about schooling - whether that would be free for the dss. I have it in the back of my mind that school is OK but Uni would be charged as International Students (although this is a way down the track!)

TIA
