Re-entering Australia on ETA Visa - proof of funds required?

Hi guys,

I have been in Australia on an ETA visa for the last 3 months.

2 weeks ago I left Aus to come back to the UK to visit some friends and family.

I am now flying back to Australia to stay for up to another 3 months.

Will I need to show proof of funds upon reaching customs? I have an offer letter for a job and am just waiting for my 457 visa to be granted.

Cheers

You should be absolutely fine, but there is always a small risk depending on who's at customs. Credit cards can count to funds.
My friend used to work in immi, and tells me that they are usually happier to let you in on a tourist visa if you have an actual plan like yours, so to speak .
(although it's true that an EtA is intended for tourism)

I personally wouldn't be worried
