WHV 462 questions!!

im us citizen and i just got my working holiday visa 462 approved
im wonder what's next? the email i received with visa grant number is that all ill need to provide at the airport and to immigration in australia aside from the financial requirements and insurance etc?

also, can anyone suggest any good websites to purchase insurance for my time there?

also, i read i need a tax number? can anyone provide info on getting that. ive read its best to get it when i get there along with a bank account. any info regarding that would be appreciated.

Im headin to Australia in 3 weeks and im stressing now

thanks!!

hi nj8199.

try doing a search on WHV as there is a plethora of information regarding these questions already on the forum.

to briefly answer your questions:
  • if you applied for your WHV online then all you need do is fly to Australia and show immigration your passport as normal. the visa has been electronically linked to your visa.
  • insurance is optional and is purely for your own benefit. no one will ask for proof of it when you enter the country.
  • based on my own experience (i am a US Citizen currently in Australia on a WHV) and based on what i've read of others' experiences, the financial requirement isn't strictly enforced. it is unlikely that you will be asked to prove that you have $5,000, but if you want to make sure you have proof anyway a bank/credit card statement will do.
  • yes, you'll have to request a tax file number once you're here. it's super easy. check out this website: Permanent migrants or temporary visitors to Australia - online tax file number (TFN) application or enquiry
  • bank accounts are easily opened, so no worries there.

seriously, don't stress. there's nothing to stress about except maybe finding a job once you get here.

Australia (from what i've seen of it thus far) is a nice place. different from America, of course. it took/takes getting use to, but it's a nice place to live.
