WHV 462 for American citizen that will be turning 31?

I have a question about the Work and Holiday Visa (Subclass 462) and I hope someone can help me answer it.

So here is a little background:

I am a 30 year old American citizen that will be turning 31 in about 6 months; this just so happens to be around the time my sister will be having a baby. I know the cutoff age for the WHV 462 is 30 but you have 12 months to activate it.

So, I was wondering if I were to apply now but put my arrival date in Australia after I have already turned 31(so I can see the baby before I go) I would likely be denied?

I would appreciate any insights you may have.

To my knowledge, as long as you apply while you are under 31 (and possibly it should be granted before you turn 31) it doesnt matter if you enter AUS after you turn 31. Its the same as WHV in Chile/Canada/US/France. These visas are pretty much the same across the board.

Boboa is correct, it's your age at the time you apply that's important - go for it
