From 651 tourist to 2nd WHV

Dear all,

Due to some unfortunate planning I am flying to Australia on the 22nd of December and was not able to apply for my 2nd WHV untill now.

So I am eligable for the 2nd WHV as Ive done my 88 days of rural work, I have the filled in employers form and bank statements and the like. However, average processing time is 21 days.. That should just be enough time to get my visa, but if it's doesnt get processed in time I'm really screwed!

So my idea was; Go to Australia on the 651 tourist visa, which generally don't have a 'no further stay' condition'. Then apply for WHV2 while in Australia; on the immi website it says I can apply while in Aus..

What do you think?

Am I overlooking anything?

If anyone ever finds themselves in my situation, it worked and everything was fine

I entered Australia on a one-way ticket and the ETA tourist visa. Then applied for the WHV 2 a few days after I arrived. I had to provide evidence and extra documentation for my 3 months of rural work, so all in all the process took a bit over a month.
