CAN_UK posted a topic in Money & FinanceHello, I was wondering if it is possible to open up a bank account in Australia while being in the country on just an ETA (visitor visa) ? Has anyone had any experience doing this? If I am successful, I will need to attend an AHPRA office in Australia to finalise some registration there, and thus need proof of Australian residence. I was hoping to apply for an australian bank account while still in the UK but am unsure of the ETA visa ~(NOT a work visa)~ will allow me to do this. Then I could get the bank to print off a statement with the Australian address I will be temporarily residing at. Kind regards, Daniel
Greetings from snowy Minnesota in the US! Over the past couple months, I've been planning a dream vacation for my elderly parents. I can't remember a time when my mom didn't talk about wanting to go to Australia. Well, I have everything booked and I then applied for everyone's ETA. Everyone else's immediately approved, while mine didn't. I had one bad night in college where I was charged with reckless driving 10 years ago & spent a night in jail. I claimed it on my ETA & I doubt that'll get approved. So I've started filling out the Visitor Visa 600 form. Tomorrow, I should get the results of the Overseas Penal Clearance Certificate, so that I can attach it to my application. Since you're all pretty knowledgeable about this, our trip is planned to start 3/3/18...what are my chances that I can get approved if I submit it tomorrow? Any tips/recommendations for me? Thank you so so so much for anything that you can provide me. Hopefully my next question will be about restaurant recommendations :D.
