Hi :)

Hoping I can get some advise I'm going to apply for my working hol visa to spend a year in Australia this week I will apply for it online but I have looked into the requirements on the website it says that I need documents and also tha I need £3,000 gbp in my bank I did know I needed this to enter aus but do I need this money in my bank to apply for the visa?

Sorry if it's stupid questions I get so confused when filling out forms and I don't want to mess this one up!

I applied for my WHV last year and had the same worry, but when I went to apply I actually didn't need to provide any proof! I'm not sure if that's changed so sorry if that's not much help - enjoy, you'll have an amazing time!

Hey there! The $$ requirement, at least as of last year, is only applied upon arrival. I wasn't asked to prove anything, but I was ready to show that I had the required sum (print out of bank statement) if asked. Most people say they didn't get asked (I didn't), but for sure you don't want to get turned away upon arrival!

Hope that helps!
