Exclamation Whv


does anyone know if your credit history in UK will effect my chances of getting a WHV for Oz.

I havent yet applied for one, and will be doing so in the next week, I am just concerned I amy be refused, as being young and in the past I was very stupid with money and this is reflected on my credit rating.

I am unsure if they run a credit check on this, any advice would be much appreciated.

Seeing as the WHV can be applied for online Lucinder and they can be granted sometimes within hours/days, a week or so at outside in extra busier times or when people are on leave, I doubt a credit check gets done for WHV and not for too many visas actually.
You do need to declare you have the funds though and that can be via even having a balance on a credit card account!, but I'd not mind reckoning that a fair bit of youthfully innocent fibbing goes on too.
It's not common for checks to be made at entry.

To cut your expenditure right from the start, have a look at Welcome to AirAsia.com, The World's Best Low-Cost Airline for cheap flights Stansted > KL > Perth, Melbourne or Gold Coast [ near Brisbane].
Lots of cheap travel links/info in our travel section too.
