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.
