Ausie visas: what's the deal?
Posted February 6th, 2013 - 4:15 pm by from Brighton, England (Permalink)
Hi guys, I'm a brit looking to travel mostly overland across Europe and Asia and eventually into Australia - a couple of people have told me that even to get the tourist visa you need to have 2 thousand pounds in your bank account, but I've seen no evidence of this on the official government website or visahq.com (even after filling in the aussie visa form on visahq to see if it said anything about it), and upon a quick search it seemed that various people on forums had not been asked to show a bank statement on entry into australia. Does anybody know what's going on with this? I ain't got much money!
And does anyone know of other countries in Europe/Asia and Australasia where you need to worry about this kind of thing? Also preferably I may need working visas for many of these countries so I can busk and fund myself (Australia and NZ in particular), so if anyone has experience with work visas that would be helpful too.
Thanks guys!
Peace and love
Emily
