    Default Debating on moving to NZ

    I live in the US and I am planning on going to Auckland to visit and stay with a friend, and from what i hear it is an amazing place to live. My question is, if i like it and want to get a place and live there and work, what would i need to do to make that happen??

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Nick, welcome.

    Moving long term to NZ is not that easy. If you haven't got immediate family there who can sponsor you, you really need to have a job skill that the country needs badly enough to grant you permanent residency. Rather than swamp you with information this early on, perhaps you could take a look at the Immigration NZ website under Apply. If you only want to stay in NZ for a limited time, you could look at a Working Holiday Visa if you are 30 or under where you could do casual work and stay for up to a year or, if you can get a skilled job offer, you could apply for a temporary work visa. You will find details of these visa types in the link above. When you've had a read through the INZ website, you can always come back here to ask for more information.
