Five reasons to move to New Zealand

Anyone who watched the Lord of the Rings Trilogy has already fallen in love with the beautiful and majestic landscape of New Zealand. If you add to that the safety aspect, the low unemployment figures and a stable economy, the friendly people, a good lifestyle and low cost of living, then immigration to New Zealand is a must.

Safe, peaceful and friendly

Overview
Many of us think of emigration at some time in our lives and New Zealand has a lot to offer.
Firstly, there is the safety aspect.
New Zealand is known to be the second most peaceful country in the world and generally only sports petty crime.
The Kiwis are a friendly nation and, all being immigrants themselves, welcome new immigrants with open arms.

Landscape and climate

Climate
New Zealand is blessed with some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
It has magnificent mountain ranges, dotted with lakes and glaciers.
It has one of the world's most spectacular coastlines and boasts large tranquil forests.
The climate is generally sub-tropical, but there are areas that have snow in the winter which makes it a wonderful place to ski.
The cities, towns and villages are well laid out and have lots to offer.
Just these factors alone often draw people to the NZ embassy to enquire about jobs and work in this amazing country.

Quality of life in New Zealand

Lifestyle
Quality of life in New Zealand is exceptionally high. Homes are affordable, even in the major cities and are usually built to a high standard. Transport is good and reasonably priced and petrol is half the price than in UK. The variety and qualities of foods available is outstanding.
In a survey conducted in 2009, New Zealand was voted number one country in the world, when it came to quality of life. Life in New Zealand would not be complete without sport. Whether it be rugby, cricket, soccer, water sports, skiing, golf, hiking, mountaineering or many of the other sports on offer, everyone will find something to do.

Low unemployment and tax benefits

Final word
New Zealand's economy is well developed and the country has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the world.
Skilled workers and entrepreneurs are eagerly sought after.
If you are tired of giving away most of your hard earned money to the government, make a new move to New Zealand, where you will only pay 17.5% tax.
Another benefit is that there is no capital gains tax or inheritance tax.
Final word
The climate, the people, the economy, the good lifestyle and the security of New Zealand are the main five reasons why people emigrate to to this country.
