Default Bank balance

Hi folks!
Should there be evidence that I have a certain amount of money saved up (supposedly for a return air fare) in a savings account for a PR visa application?

Sorry for all the questions, I am now gathering all information together and now have lots to check up on!

There was a section on the form asking "how much wonga are you bringing?" We just guessed what we'd have by then (house+2 cars+savings) multiplied by 2.75 (oh god have you seen the FX rate today?) and stuck that down.

No proof was asked for.

No, you get asked how much you expect to take, but you don't have to prove it. Given
the fact that it can take months to land a first job, you should be indicating that
you have enough wedge to provide for yourself for quite a while.

<grin> you don't have to show sufficient money to purchase a ticket home if you apply for PR. That usually applies to tourists, so as to satisfy the immigration officers that you do *not* intend to stay permanently in the country!

You do, however, need to bring along a sensible amount of money to tide you over the potential period of time when you are searching for a job, unless you already have that waiting for you there.

Cheers,
Peter
