Welcome to PIO


Prob the best thing to do with your money is to transfer it over to an Australian Bank Account before you leave. Many accounts you can open online in UK - and your cards and pin number will be waiting for you to collect once you get to Australia - so in CBD branch in Perth.


If you are looking to do the 2 years - or have option to go back on another WHV before you are 31, do your 3 month Regional work early on - or space it out over the 12 months.
