    TORONTO/WELLINGTON (Reuters) - Canada's main immigration website appeared to crash and New Zealand reported increased traffic from U.S. nationals as Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump inched closer to the White House on Wednesday.

    Canada's main immigration website appeared to suffer repeated outages on Tuesday night as Trump took the lead in several major states and his prospects for winning the U.S. presidency turned markedly higher.

    In New Zealand, immigration officials told Reuters on the eve of the vote that New Zealand Now website, which deals with residency and student visas, had received 1,593 registrations from United States citizens since Nov. 1 – more than 50 percent of a typical month’s registrations in just seven days.

    Visits to New Zealand Now from the United States were up almost 80 percent to 41,000 from 7 Oct to 7 November, compared to the same period last year.
