Living in New Zealand

New Zealand seems to have escaped the current world economic downturn and is well placed to profit from the world's shortage of commodities.  Current government policy is aligned at choosing the best of the best. Residence applicants must be able to invest, find skilled work relevant to their own qualifications and experience, train or study to have a chance at success. This allows New Zealand to be selective not just on the basis of experience, skills and background but also on applicants' abilities to adopt, assimilate and prosper.

New Zealand has a democratic parliamentry system of government. It is a member of the British Commonwealth.

New Zealand is a country of rare beauty with glacial mountains, volcanoes, hissing geysers, boiling mud pools, long beautiful beaches, rivers and forests reserves.  Its environment is ideal for outdoor pursuits such as hiking, skiing, river rafting, sailing and picnics on the beach.

New Zealand is situated in the South Pacific Ocean 1600 kilometers south east of Australia with an area of 269,000sq km.  It consists of the North and South Islands and a number of smaller islands.  The populations is 3.5 million.  The four main cities are Auckland, (the largest city, poulation 1.2 million), Wellington (the capital city), Christchurch and Dunedin.

The daytime temperatures range from 19-28 degrees Celsius in the summer to 10-15 degrees in winter.

English and Maori are the two official languages with English being the main language.


The state provides a comprehensive system of primary and secondary schools.  Certain visas granted to parents allow for their children to accompany them on student visas to study primary and secondary school on domestic rates within periods coterminous with their parent's visas. The state also provides tertiary education recognised worldwide consisting of universities and technical institutes providing skill and training required in both domestic and international commerce and the professions. There is also a large number of privately run schools and tertiary institutions, giving a huge variety of educational course options.

Bearing in mind that some courses can contribute to your points score under a Skilled Migrant Category ("SMC") Application for New Zealand Residence, education not only provides you with the necessary skills to find work in New Zealand and the rest of the world, education can also provide you with a clear path to New Zealand Residence.

New Zealand offers a wide variety of housing options.Temporary and permanent housing range from backpackers, student accommodations, city apartments, duplexes, stand alone homes/villas with 1/2 bedrooms to multi-million dollar mansions. The choice ultimately depends on your personal circumstances, your financial ability and of course, your preferences.
