Dear Forum, I really appreciate any help/advice.
I am considering relocating to undertake work in Apia, Somoa for 1-3 years. We are a family with two young kides 6 and 4.
We enjoy outdoor activities and are not the type that live on a big budget, happy to go to local markets, pub meals, enjoying the beach and adventure. We are a pretty average Australian family, cook at home, couple meals out each week.
I would appreciate any advice on living costs, general cost for food and living. We would consider having a basic car for travel, a 3 bedroom house (unfurnished) that was nice but not excessive. We are being provided with an allowance of AUS20,000 for a house, and AUS15,000 per child for education at a private school.
I know it is hard to determine general living costs but any thought on the amount of money per year I would need to generally pay all my bills and have a fun life in Apia would be really appreciated.
I would be interested any additional knowledge if I pay tax and at what rate, for money earnt in Apia, Somoa.
Thank you again to any residents that could help this potential expat!
