Why New Zealand?

  • Overview

    The adventure destination of the world attracts people from around the world with long term stay and Permanent Residency (PR) in mind. New Zealand promotes inward mobility and supports it through the refined migration system. The purpose is to attract skilled migrants to ease acute labour shortages and provide them with better earning career prospects. Settlement and integration programmes have been well developed and deployed by a proactive government in order to improve labour market and social outcomes that affect overall population well-being.

    The relaxed lifestyle and work-life balance draws many new residents each year. Migrants experience a better quality of life and better mental well being than in their home country. The most striking factor is the ease of integrating into the new country. New Zealanders live up to their reputation of being warm and friendly. For those moving with kids, New Zealand makes a safe home with one of the best education systems in the world.

  • Economy and Job Market

    New Zealand is one of Asia–Pacific’s most prosperous countries with a highly developed free-market economy. Top ranked in ease of doing business, New Zealand has one of the most globalised economies in the world and relies on its international connections for its international trade.

    New Zealand's diverse economy has a sizable service sector, accounting for 63% of all economic activity. Key industries include agriculture, technology, tourism and manufacturing. Exports account for 30% of the GDP. The New Zealand dollar is the 10th-most traded currency in the world.

    New Zealand's population is projected to grow by 1.4 million people between 2020 and 2043. This will increase the size of the workforce and create more demand for jobs. While the overall population is growing, the proportion of the population that is aged 65 and over is also increasing. This means that there will be a need for more workers to fill the jobs that are currently held by older people. It is important for workers to have the skills and qualifications that employers are looking for. Some of the industries that are expected to grow in New Zealand in the coming years are Construction, Healthcare, Technology, Education, Tourism.
