Important information about moving to New Zealand

By organizing perfect international removals, we aim to ‘accompany’ you to New Zealand with everything you need to make your move as carefree as possible.

We know which formalities have to be taken into account to help you achieve your goals once you have moved to New Zealand. A New Zealand residence permit, also known as “Permanent Residence”, is absolutely essential. You will need this if you want to emigrate to New Zealand and live or work there indefinitely. There are different ways to obtain this permit. Ranging from family reunification to investment, there are many possible options. You are covered by the public health insurance system (National Health Insurance) if you have a right of residence or a work permit with a minimum validity of two years. If you intend to work in New Zealand, you will need a tax number. However, to be able to participate fully in life you will need to open a bank account. As you can already see here: All these formal aspects and the necessary logistics for transporting your household goods to New Zealand make it almost impossible to manage the move abroad single-handedly without any form of professional assistance.
