I'm planning on leaving Australia a couple days before my WHV runs out at the end of April. Can anyone tell me how soon after that I can apply for a regular tourist visa?

hello, think u have to be OUTSIDE from the country to apply for the tourist thing... means: go out 2 o3 three days BEFORE your WHV runs out and u apply for the tourist visa. it takes minutes online to make it on your own! think this link helps: http://www.immi.gov.au/visitors/tourist/index.htm

Hi - thanks for that. I will be outside the country, and I'll wait the few days until my WHV has actually expired, I just didn't know if they were reluctant to hand them out so soon - when I've just spent a year there and have only been gone a few days.
