Hi everyone... Im a UK resident and im off to Oz in March 2006...woohoo..I have heard through the grapevine that you need to have a certain amount of money in your bank acount before applying for a working holiday visa? if this is true how much do i need? I have to say that this concerns me a bit so i would appreciate any advice, thanks in advance.

yeah I was told this also but me and my friend were given different information!He was at the Embassy last week and they told him he needed £2000 in his bank....I am yet to go to the Embassy but i think you should either call them or make an appointment after you have checked out their website and you need to maek sure you get all the details spot on!

I just read that they want to make sure you don't work there so by having a sufficient amount of money in the bank they don't think you will be working in the country illegally. somethign like that no?
