    Australian Work Visa

    Been searching the web (to no avail) to find out how long I can go to Oz for to visit my brother and perhaps do some work out there.

    Can anyone advise?

    Very stringent requirements for working in Oz - you will need to read up if you are likely to qualify.

    Might be wrong... but sure I read they give you 24 months straight off now.

    have a friend who came back in january after 2 years-first year he could work no problem,second year the guy he was working for became his "sponsor" or summat like that to enable him to do another 12 months.

    this is correct, also construction - my bro has got a whv (working holiday visa) and he will get 24 months if he wants (think you have to do a certain amount of work to qualify for second year)

    NOOO! You do not need a sponsor for what you are asking about.

    You just need a working holiday visa. Lasts upto 12 months and is intended for travel and work to supplement your visit, i.e. work in Australia for up to 6 months with each employer.

    But I am now 32 years old!

    you are too old now i'm afraid for WHV - you would have to do cash in hand type work... I met a girl about 2 months ago who worked in a bar in Kings Cross illegally, they sometimes have raids but she has not been caught yet.
