Applying online for Australian Work and Holiday Visa

Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Applying online for Australian Work and Holiday Visa

As a U.S. citizen I am eligible to apply online for my Work and Holiday Visa subclass 462. I've been trying to do so for the past week and the service always seems to be down. Is anyone else having an issue with this or is it just me??? I've just sent an email to the people who take care of the online applications asking if it will be fixed soon. I hope it does get fixed as it will be much quicker than sending it in manually and I want to be in Australia by the end of June. ARGH!!!

Just had a look on the website, and it seems fine to me - I managed to click through to the beginning of the application where you type in your details. There are however a couple of pages where there is a box talking about outages, and issues with a couple of things - are you sure you're not seeing that and thinking it's all down?

Adding to the above, when going to this page on the DIAC website there is a box titled "System Outages and Maintenance" - however further down there is the "Start your application" link which worked fine for me just now.
