Booking Ticket & Getting WHV

Recommended Posts



We are in NSW, daughters boyfriend is coming over on a WHV. Does he need to apply for that first before booking a flight or doesnt it matter ?


Does he have to book a return ticket? or just a 1 way ticket for now?

I'd get the visa first to be on the safe side. It should only take a few days at most to be granted. Then he can book his flights to fit in.


He doesn't have to book a return. However, he would be wise to have funds and proof of funds to satisfy immigration that he can leave Aus at the end of his WHV if he does not have a return ticket. They advise $5,000 or so funds to have if coming over on a WHV. I think its important he has money to see him through as it it does go fast and work isn't always easy to find.


Personally I'd say an open return ticket so can choose the return date at a later date when ready.
