Airport Reception and Accommodation Placement Services

 

Being in a foreign country on your own can be an overwhelming and nerve-wracking experience. This is why SAI encourages you to sign up for our Airport Reception and Accommodation Placement Services so you don't have to worry where you need to go once you arrive in Australia. With this service, you will safe and sound and most importantly, welcome and at home upon your arrival.

AIRPORT RECEPTION

We offer our airport greeting service to all of our students. When you avail yourself of this service, we'll send someone over to welcome you at Pert International Airport and take you to the location of your chosen accommodation.

HOMESTAY

Apart from picking you up at the airport, we'll also help you find a place to stay while studying in Perth through our homestay placements. Our homestay hosts range from families and couples to single parents and individuals. No matter who your homestay host will be, you can expect them to provide you with a safe and comfortable roof under your head and introductory advice on living and studying in Australia. With their help, you can better adjust to your new environment, gain a better understanding of the Australian way of life, and improve your ability to communicate in English.

Your host family will also provide you with a clean and furnished bedroom to make your stay as convenient and comfortable as possible. You will also be given access to bathroom and laundry facilities and meal services. Homestay services generally last two weeks.

This service is only for students 18 years old and above.
