fimbria25 has indicated that this thread is about Australia

Has anyone had any experience with applying for a working visa, because the rules on the visa website, it say that you need a return ticket, but if you show you have the neccessary funds, then you don't need a return ticket.

Has anybody been ok entering the country without a return ticket?

Also do i need my flight details to be able to apply for the working visa?

This may be a silly question/s but where are you coming from and where do you want the visa for?

I have applied and was just accepted. I leave Sept 2 from Vancouver. Mind you I am a Canadian but the rules are the same. I didn't have any flight plans but I had the sufficient funds and a valid passport which are the 2 most important things you need when applying. If you already have a ticket you still need a certain amount of funds but not as much and I'm pretty sure you would have to show a return ticket. Basically if you are just showing funds then you don't have to disclose any ticket details and I've heard you can enter without a return ticket however I bought one to be safe. The application form asks for a departure date but you don't have to prove anything so you could just give a ballpark date. Hope this helps.

hey there,

i came to oz five weeks ago with a one way ticket and did not have top show bank details when i actually got her. i got my visa from sta travel, and i would recommend that you do not purchase air ticket before getting visa as on extreme reasons you may not get accepted if there are already over the limit of how many they give out.

good luck and enjoy your travels

Thanks for your help.

I want to apply for my visa as soon as possible, just waiting for my passport to be renew as it was gonna run out whist i was away......

Does anyone know the amount of funds you need to show?

I've just got my Visa. STA told me it's 2k, and that can be made up of bank statements and credit card statements, as long as they show that you have the sufficient funds.

I have received an email granting me my holiday visa. I did not have to show any proof regarding funds etc. I completed it online and answer all the question honestly.

Will they need to see proof of funds when I arrive in Oz??

Far as i know you need to show a bank statement or something simliar just to say that you have £1800 to support yourself whilst your in OZ.
