All International students under the age of 18 years old must, by Australian Law, have a carer whilst they are in Australia. Various institutions have their own additional requirements in relation to welfare arrangements for students under 18, but for general welfare arrangements please visit the Carer Responsibilities page.
All Oz Homestay families acting as carers have a current Working with Children clearance check.
Oz Homestay drivers will meet the student at Sydney Airport and transport them to their homestay family.

Those drivers transferring students under the age of 18 hold current Working with Children clearances.
