How much money do I have to take with me after getting my work visa for Australia?
Question by You Never Know: How much money do I have to take with me after getting my work visa for Australia?
I want to know how much money I should have before entering Australia as a single baker.
This money should be the money that I would spend on my rent and stuff like that. So, if you are into immigration rules, or you are an Australian who knows about immigration, please let me know about it.
I don’t want to take a lot of money, say AUD10000, just for some months until I secure myself a job.

First off, for all of the answers to all of your questions regarding immigration, visas, Australian life in general etc, follow this link to the very informative government site:
How much money you will need in the first instance depends on how much you want to spend, and also on what visa you are entering Australia. If you are coming as a PR, then there is no minimum. If its a working holiday, its a sum sufficient to support yourself, often held to be $ 5,000.
Rent will cost you anything up to $ 450 per week, but could be as low as $ 100 if you are sharing . Food will be from $ 50 to $ 100 per week depending on how many takeaways you have. Public transport at say $ 5 – $ 10per day. Then there is your going out money – which can be anything from$ 25 to $ 100 per night, depending on where you go, how much you drink, and for whom you buy drinks.
