Chilean Working Holiday Scheme Visa - round 2012-2013: 1000 quota now full

The Chile Working Holiday Scheme was opened at 10:00am (New Zealand time) on Thursday 4 October 2012 (Wednesday 3 – 6pm in Chile time). INZ online system experienced severe technical difficulties due to a high volume of people already logged onto the system shortly after the scheme opened. A thorough investigation is being carried out regarding this issue.

Next year’s quota is scheduled to open in October 2013.

Immigration New Zealand apologises for any inconvenience this incident may have caused.
