  1. Hi E2NZ,

    I am curious about the history of this site. Did a couple of people get together and set it up? Is there a page somewhere on here detailing how it all started? Before I came to NZ I recall a couple of expat Kiwis warning me about the Country. Now that I have been here a few years you would think that there is no such thing as an expat Kiwi with a bad word for NZ. It is still surprises me that criticisms of NZ are almost an underground activity. I read recently that the 2 “happiest” countries on the planet Denmark and New Zealand have similar parallels with an incredibly fast growing rich/poor divide. Does anyone know if Denmark is similar to NZ in terms of suppression of negative information? For example, last week the Police in the Lower South Island were told they can no longer release information on the nationalities of drivers in fatal accidents, problem solved. I am as guilty as anyone in burying my head in the sand. The King in his birthday suit springs to mind. I think it is because we hear non stop how great NZ is. Even the TV adverts are all about we are Kiwis and we are happy with our Weetbix, cars, TVs, insurance etc. I am from the UK and can only speak from that experience but certainly all the TV adverts over there didn’t somehow go on about being British. It might be different now, maybe it is an advertising trend.

    • The site arose out of group of interested people who were once members of Expatexposed.com but had some changes over the years. Fortunately it is operated and hosted from outside of New Zealand which is why we don’t feel the pressures to serve the Kool-Aid that other sites are obliged to offer.

      E2NZ.org is a collective and anyone can contribute. If you have an article you think may be suitable please leave it in the comments section.

      • Is it advisable as some on the site say, to make sure you have secured a job first before moving to nz.
        My question refers to health sector. Is this preferable to approaching the hospitals direct on arrival [from uk]
        I notice many posters do not advise going to nz w/out a job if you want to work while there.

        Thanks for any advice .

        • Just be aware many people on this site may advise you to not come to New Zealand at all, saying you still have time to reconsider. If you decide to go ahead the first rule always applies – don’t leave home without a signed employment contract.

  4. Hi there, I was interested in reading your leaving strategies. I am also a Kiwi; do you mind if I could join your site please?
    it feels like the longer I stay here, the chances of going mad increases…

  5. How would you feel about Kiwis joining your site? I’m pissed off about living here and want to get out. Am I welcome?

    • The site is mostly focused on migrants in New Zealand, but there are plenty of Kiwis who feel unhappy about their country and are looking for advice without being judged. You’re welcome here, send us your contact details.

    • I left New Zealand 8 months ago and have been reading your blog for a while now. Thank you for doing everything you do, it has helped me understand what went wrong for me in that god awful place.

      I’d love to talk to anyone who understands where I’m coming from, people here can’t fathom why I wanted to come home. You have to have lived in NZ to get it.

      • Hi Susan. I am happy to correspond with you. Send me an e-mail to freeman76@hushmail.com with your contact details and we can correspond. I extricated myself from New Zealand several months ago and I would enjoy chatting to someone that has undergone a similar experience. I look forward to hearing from you.

    • I want to able to talk to someone about why it’s so hard to find work. I’ve sent off over 40 applications since I got here and got three interviews only to be told I’m over qualified. I’m beginning to feel that I made a bad decision and would like to talk about my options. Is anyone else in the same boat?
