Moving To New Zealand

If you are planning to emigrate to another country and have been thinking of moving to New Zealand, you will find plenty to offer in this beautiful country.

New Zealand has a population of approximately 4 million and is roughly the same size as Britain, which gives you an idea of the amount of space you will experience. The quality of life is better than the average person experiences in the UK, because of the space, homes are bigger, gardens are bigger and of course it has some of the most stunning beaches in the world.

Life certainly is more laid back and relaxed and New Zealanders love to entertain outside just as much as their Australian cousins, barbeques are a great way to get to know your new neighbours and make new friends.

Getting into New Zealand is relatively easy if you have the skills in the areas the government is looking for, such as finance, tourism, manufacturing and agriculture.

Houses For Sale In New Zealand

You will definitely not find large housing estates in NZ!  Most homes are individually designed and built, it is unusual to find rows of houses all looking the same.  Most homes are made of wood, although brick built homes are becoming more and more popular, with the majority of them roofed with corrugated steel.

As with the UK, the closer to the city the more expensive the properties cost.  Currently, you would expect to pay an average price of NZ$ 675,000 (£328,000) for a family home in Auckland, NZ$435,000 (£212,000) in Wellington and Central Otago Lakes NZ$482,000 (£235,000). Please be aware that currency rates fluctuate.

New Zealand Travel Connections

Before you take to the highways of New Zealand it is advisable to read the Road Code (Highway Code) book, as some aspects of driving are quite different to the UK.  Everything is measured in kilometres and the around town speed limit is 50km per hour with 100km on the open roads.

The public transport system is good and easy to use with plenty of buses available.  The KiwiRail operates passenger trains and provides long distance services across the country.

It is often cheaper to use a domestic flight when travelling between one island and the other. There are airports in Auckland, Christchurch and Queenstown, along with smaller regional airports across the country.
