4 Questions About Entrance Requirements to Australia (working holiday visa

Posted on March 8, 2016 | in Travellers Questions | by

The "Working Holiday Visa (417)" requirements have a lot of specifics (some of which Ive included at the bottom), and for some reason Im having a hard time with this. Anyone care to help?

Question 1): Do I have to actually provide proof of funds in my account when I arrive? Ive read you need that for the visa application process, but once youre approved, youre approved and dont need to show it anymore.

Question 2): Im not being sponsored by work, Im going to roll in and then find any work I can. In this case, do I need and of the employer references, verification form, or bank statement?

Question 3): What the heck is a "certified copy" or passports and birth certificates? How does one certify a copy??

Question 4) I didnt keep my pay slips! I never have! I have a T4 for my taxes that I can get a "certified copy" of, once I figure out how to do that. Does anyone know whether theyd accept that??

Thanks everyone!
