Has anyone ever had to apply for a working holiday visa? if so, do you have a limit on when you have to apply for it before your date of travelling? I'm planning on going in Sept 2004, so I was wondering when was best cos i would like to save a bit first. Anyways you have to have £2000 in your bank when you apply, don't you?

hi laura,
i'm not sure, if this link is what you need or if you find the necessary information there, but maybe it's helpful:

there, you can apply for an australian electronic travel authority.
in every case - good luck with your visa,

you can apply for it 12 months in advance of your trip, but its best to apply early, as they only give out a certain amount of visas per year. I am also going to oz on a working holiday visa in sept. I applied a week ago online(i think at the link moonflower gave), and it only took a couple of days to be processed. You do need the £2000 in your account, but they didnt ask me to prove that i had that much in the account. hope this helps :)
