    If you look on here , particularly under Real Estate and Shopping, you can see the cost of accommodation, food and other household items. The supermarkets, for instance, have online shopping which allows you to see how much food items cost and you can look at furniture etc. I hope the links are still working because sometimes they change. This should give you a start on working out how much you will need to live in NZ but, obviously, prices will vary depending on which part of the country you live in and whether you live in a city or in the countryside.

    Health care is subsidised for those migrants with residency visas or long term work permits but it isn't free. Look under Health on the link above.
