Find out how to move to New Zealand

  • by

Our guide will tell you everything you need to know about how to move to New Zealand and how to adapt to life in NZ once you are here.

It’s every resource you will ever need in one easily accessible place.

Did you know that…

NZ is rated as the second safest country in the world to live in, after Iceland, but guess what? We get better weather.

27.4% of NZ’s population is made up of individuals who were not born in NZ. That makes NZ a very diverse country to live in!

The borders might be closed but there are still ways to move to New Zealand, so don’t put your ideas of moving here on the back burner just yet!

So, who exactly are we?

We’re Dawn & Isaac. A couple who was in the exact same position you were in seven years ago.

We moved to NZ in late 2014 after nearly five years of trying to decide if we wanted to move here. That’s four whole years of living a lifestyle we did not want to live, over four whole years of dreaming of ‘What If’.

We do not wish that on anyone.

We wrote this guide because we know how you are feeling and we want to help people with their pending move to New Zealand. We know how it feels to sit on the fence about a decision, we know how it feels to not know if moving to a new country is the right decision, we know how it feels to fear the unknown and we know how it feels to move to NZ permanently.

Our guide has already helped over 200 people with their move to New Zealand.

Here is just a snippet of the feedback we are getting:

“This guide is great. I particularly like all of the handy links that are embedded throughout the guide. I found the section on banking super helpful as I am right in the middle of trying to organise this. I was about to make things REALLY complicated for myself and this guide really helped me to organise myself better.”

Amy from Chicago

“I greatly enjoyed Dawn & Isaac’s guide to moving to New Zealand. It really does codify the considerations and steps one should be aware of. The moving to New Zealand checklist was my favourite exercise and I really appreciated the visualisation exercise and really honing in on what excites and scares us about moving to NZ. The resource links you provided were great too!”

Kenny from Hong Kong

“Thank you for creating this guide. I particularly enjoyed the insights into everything money-related. The comparison guide was really useful and I really enjoyed Dawn & Isaac sharing their personal experiences throughout the guide. This guide has helped me to plan better and get fully prepared for my impending move to New Zealand!”

Abby from England

“I just wanted to send you & Isaac a quick email to say how brilliant this guide is! There’s so much useful information packed in, and I found the tasks all really helpful as well. There’s so much more in the guide I hadn’t considered or things I had thought of to look in to but just had no idea on where to start or find that information. But now I have all the information I need.”

Gemma from England
