Working Holiday- additional funds for return plane ticket

Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Working Holiday- additional funds for return plane ticket

I'm going to Oz on a WHV soon- I'm entering on a one-way plane ticket as opposed to a return ticket.

I understand that you need funds of $5000 AND evidence of the fare for a return plane ticket. How much would they consider this to be in addition to the $5000?

Also, has anyone actually been asked for proof of their funds when they've reached Australia?

Hi also going out there on a one way ticket - I'm not sure how much money you need extra to the $5000 but I've been told they check funds for people with one way tickets but not for people with returns - not sure how much truth in this though....

Try for flight deals @ nat393
Also I've been told that they rarely check addtional funds anyway, but try for info regarding this.
or try and contact majito on this site because he is a australian migration agent and has really helped me out with various visa questions amongst others.
Good luck
