There is no limit to the number of jobs you can have at any time. Just so long as you don't work for any one employer for more than 6 months.
Do I need to have $5000 in cash?
You are required to show that you can financially support yourself during your visit. Immigration do make random spot check upon arrival. You will need to satisfy the,m that you can afford to remain for your entire stay / enough money until you find work and that you can afford a flight out of Australia. Its a good idea to carry copies of bank statement, have a credit card and be able to justify that you have enough funds. Even if that means a call home to the parents. The figure also depends on your length of stay. $5000 is a guide for a 12 month visit.
How long do I have to apply for my 2nd year visa?
You can apply anytime up until your 31st birthday provided you have fulfilled 3 months specified work. You do not have to apply straight after you 1 st visa expires.
I had a working holiday visa and went for 3 weeks to Australia. I then had to come home for a wedding / Funeral. Its now a year later can I apply for a new working visa as I did not stay 12 months?
The answer is NO. Once you enter Australia on a working holiday visa you are deemed to have used it regardless of how long you stay or what story you tell immigration.
I have dual nationality can I apply for a working visa twice under different passports?
Nice try but we are afraid you as a person can only apply and be granted one visa even if you have two nationalities. Don' t think you can get away with it.
I have been granted my working visa but not yet arrived in Australia. I now don't want to go for another year. What should I do?
If you do not enter Australia on your visa it will not be activated. You will be able to apply for another visa provided you have never entered Australia on a working visa prior. You will have to pay an additional visa fee.
I am going to Australia and have my working holiday visa already but I don't want to enter on it as I will only be there for a few days as need to go home etc?
You will need to contact the department of immigration or local consul and apply to have your working holiday visa cancelled and an ETA ( tourist) visa issued. Make sure you do this before you land in Australia otherwise you working visa will be activated.
