Welcome to Thinking of Emigrating to New Zealand

Welcome to our little blog.

Are you considering a move to New Zealand? perhaps you’re thinking of living there long term or just want to sample the lifestyle for a while and then move on.

This is a blog dedicated to giving you as much information as possible to enable you to make an informed choice because it’s always better to go into these things with eyes wide open.

There is a wealth of information on the world wide web about the benefits of New Zealand, this centres mostly around the beautiful landscape, the laid back lifestyle and how great a place it is to raise kids.

Sounds too good to be true huh?

There isn’t so much information on the realities of life for many newcomers to the country, the problems that migrants face most days and how they manage to overcome them, if indeed they do.

Nor is there much about the poverty, the high level of crime, high number of road accidents, the prevalence of drug, alcohol and child abuse and the dissatisfaction that is felt within New Zealand. Perhaps this is the reason why over a quarter of the population of New Zealand have chosen to live somewhere other than in New Zealand.
