Hi,

I still need to apply for my working holiday visa but just need some advise before I do :) I know you need to have £3,000 pounds in your bank to enter Australia but do I have to have this in my bank when applying for my visa or can I apply for it and then save up the money, also my passport it damaged so I need to get a new one should I do this before I apply for my visa or does it not matter

Just to let you know I went over with £1900 and stayed for one year, obviously I needed to work but the £3000 thing is true but they rarely check

Thank you, I'm hoping to have about £4,000 by the time I go the more I take the less Hours I have to work

Haha but the more you work the more money you have to have fun with get as much work as you can to begin for at least 4 months I would say then the rest is having fun
