Hello guys,

My name is Matt and I will be leaving England for Australia on Monday. I will be on a Working Holiday Visa, and have around A$4,800, plus a return ticket home, currently 4 months later. Will this be enough to get through authourities?

I know you supposed to have $5,000, but is that still needed when you have the return ticket home? I will eventually have the 5000 its just that my last wages won't go through for a few days after I arrive.

Any advice would be appreciated,

I've not been to oz yet, but from everything I've read on these forums and others, most people don't get asked and even if you do you're close enough to $5000 to be fine! Just make sure you print out a bank statement to take with you before you go. If you're still worried about it you could just get a friend/relative to put the rest of the money in then print the statement and give the money back..I'm not going to have anywhere near $5000 when I go so that's what I'm doing! :)
