at the last moment i've decided to join my mate travelling on the 31st jan and i need 2 get a working visa sorted asap because we are planning 2 work for a month or so during our stay in oz - is there time for me to get a working visa or can i get a normal visa now and apply for a working visa when i get over there?

If you apply now, you have about 75% chance that it'll be approved before the 31st. (Rough estimate - don't know exactly how busy this time of the year is.)

Both myself and my mate applied online on the australian immigration website and where approved the very next day...

no gaurantee it would be the same for you however...

I got mine one hour after I applied. Very impressive.

Good luck!
