It is important you secure the right visa before moving to New Zealand. To get some guidance and help about the various types of visa available including their eligibility criteria, visit the New Zealand Immigration website.


Whether you are planning on living in a flat right in the heart of the city or in a family home offering great outdoor lifestyle, visit, and and check which type of properties is available and at what cost.


Choosing the right school for your children can be a stressful challenge, so head to the Ministry of Education website, which is a good starting point to understand New Zealand’s education system.  For latest school review reports, visit the Education Review Office website.


All permanent residents are entitled to healthcare, but it is still common practice to register with a private healthcare provider as well.  For more guidance on the national healthcare services and some information per region, visit New Zealand’s Healthcare Services website.
