Hi Camilla, a member of PIO has just pointed out that the department web site still has it as 31, I had a look and it is. What is the situation for current applicants?

Hi Verystormy

Just got back from 2 weeks hols and saw your post. Strange one here, the legislation has been updated saying must be under 35 but the immi website doesnt reflect this!  Another DIBP mystery!!!!

(2)  The applicant:

(a)  holds a  working holiday eligible passport of the kind, or of one of the kinds, specified in a legislative instrument made by the Minister for the purposes of this subclause; andof the kind, or of one of the kinds, specified in a legislative instrument made by the Minister for the purposes of this subclause; and

(b)  is aged at least 18 and no more than:

(i)  35; or

(ii)  if a younger age is specified in the instrument mentioned in paragraph (a) for the kind of passport the applicant holds-that younger age.

Good old DIBP....  so many changes happening there I think they are drowning in new information and regulations..... surely they should have their website up to date though?
