    Default Buying property and retiring to New Zealand

    Does anyone know if it is possible to purchase a property in NZ and live there after retirement, using a 6 month permit and leaving the country for a short period of time and then returning on a new 6 month permit.

    If this is not possible does anyone know if people other than family can sponsor you to come to NZ? for example very very close friend who have been friends for over 50 years.

    Default Buying property and retiring to New Zealand

    Hi,
    Only family can sponsor you for a residence application, but as you say, you can come for 6 months at a time. The only drawback is that for every 6 months in New Zealand, you have to spend the next 6 months out before they will allow you to re-enter on a new permit.

    All the best

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
