Automatic Transition of Status

In my worflow, when an issue is created, it goes to "open" status. After that it has to picked up for review and approval. I want to configure the workflow in such a way that if a particular issue type is in "open" status for more than 2 "working days" it is moved to the "approved" status automatically. Is this possible without writing a script?
