Hi,

I am not entirely sure I think it is about £2000. I am having a major stress because I am trying hard to dave but things keep cropping up that need paying that keep draining my bank account - it's getting highly frustrating, I am not sure if I will officially have enough or not so here's to hoping I get a job ASAP! As far as I am aware they don't really check but I may be wrong!

Hey, sorry for the late comment!

I don't know anyone that has ever been asked to prove they're bank balance! When we arrived in Oz last year, my mate and I had battled hard to get the £2000 that you're meant to have. I borrowed money to put in my account, then withdrew it once the statement was printed and gave it back!! And at the end of it all, no-one even asked to see the statments!!

They same goes with all the mates we met out there, and we met a few!!

Don't worry you're sock off about it, if you really want a statement showing £2000 maybe you could borrow it like me, and then give it back?

Hope this helps

Rhiannon
