Immigration to New Zealand - The Safest and Friendliest Places to Live

New Zealand is world renowned as one of the safest and friendliest places to live, as well as for having one of the most unique and beautiful environments, with a plethora of outdoor activities to choose from. As one of the most popular tourist destinations, this international appeal extends further to individuals and families who wish to make the move to New Zealand permanently.

In accordance with immigration policy, there are various categories under which entry may be applied for, including the skilled migrants, business and investment, family quotas, refugee status, and other miscellaneous categories relating to the relationships New Zealand has with its Pacific neighbours. However, the skilled migrant category is by far the main pathway to residency in New Zealand, ensuring that those people entering the country have the desired skills, experience and knowledge to further contribute to the growth of the economy and the creation of employment opportunities.

Additionally, as a result of the most recent housing boom and following economic recession, the situation of zero and negative equity has been experienced by many Canadians, as properties were purchased in the height of the housing boom at exuberant prices. The effect of recessionary pressures and rising unemployment rates during the past year has meant a double blow for many homeowners, with reducing equity and worth for their properties, coupled with poor labour market conditions, crippling many households with hefty mortgages that are now harder to service. However, as the market is indicating the first signs of recovery, the willingness of owners to place their house on the market is increasing, with many bargains available throughout the entire country.

Escalating demand for a pre-set number of places results in many suitably qualified individuals being denied, as only the best prepared applications will be accepted. A professional and experienced consultancy that specialises in New Zealand immigration are best placed to provide sound advice on eligibility criteria and the submission process, increasing your chances of being accepted. Not only can consultants reduce the stress and time involved, they can also streamline the process and provide the necessary information and assistance in relation to employment, housing, relocation and adaption to the New Zealand culture once your application has been accepted. Don't become one of the thousands of statistics denied due to improperly filed submissions.

Contact an immigration consultant to ensure that your relocation to New Zealand is as enjoyable as your new life in this great country will be.
