On the step 4/17, I got the message of:

An error has occurred
This service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.

I read the FAQ mentioning that "invalid characters" need to be removed. The issue is, I do not have invalid character on my application.

Anybody can help with this issue? thanks

I want to know how we solve this issue... maybe the senior can help
There is not form to be filled on step 4, only acknowledgement. It is really weird.
Apparently many people have this issue.

Hi Guys!

Its been over 2 weeks since I received the invite [Skilled Nominated 190] and though I have completed filling up my online application, I am stuck after the last page [step 17/17].

When I click "Next" I see that dreadful "system is currently unavailable" error! :(

This happens in any browser that I try! :(

Already posted an enquiry in the Skill select site and even called their toll free visa enquiries but no response.

Is any one facing the same problem?

Thanks,

RAJEEV

Guys who are facing the same problem as of Kuljit:

It is due to any special characters or invalid symbols that you might have placed and or copy pasted including free invisible spaces. This error is clearly mentioned in DIBP FAQ website below. Please have a look. I do not know resolution, but what I can suggest is, you try to check every field and remove things that are not supported right from the first page.

Can I copy and paste information from a document into my eVisa application?

eVisa lets information be copied from a document such as Microsoft Word and pasted into the free text fields of the online form.

When copying data you must remove all formatting such as bullet points, numbering, accents etc from your document into the free text fields. Only use numbers 0–9 and letters A–Z (upper and lower case), dashes ‘–’ and underscores '_'. If unrecognised characters or specific formats are detected in your application you may be prevented from lodging your application, viewing the PDF version of the application form or you may receive the following error message:

‘This service is temporary unavailable, please try again later’

If you receive the message you need to check your application and remove the invalid characters before continuing.

Best regards,
JR
