hi!! i'm on a 457 as well and only 3 weeks in Perth, i suggest be prepared financially as you come over. If you could set up a bank account before you arrive much better. You'll find it quite expensive at first until you get used to everything. Like what was mentioned you have to get an accommodation - i got a single bed apartment for 270/week and it was unfurnished. i spent almost 2K for the furniture and appliances. At first a bit shocking but it's beautiful here!!!!suzie5555 said:Hi are there any specific requirements for a 457 visa similar to other visa like 175 or 176 where you have to bring certain amount of money with you.
