Hello, I want to hear from families who have relocated from Canada to New Zealand. I am interested to hear about the process. I am a 29 y/o tourism and hospitality professional with over 10 years in the hotel business. My wife is an LPN and we have 2 kids ages 4 and 1. I travelled to NZ 5 years ago and had an incredible experience. I didn't want to leave. My wife and I want to try living in different part of the world and expose our kids to a unique way of living. Is there anyone on this forum who wants to share their experience? Challenges vs Benefits? What we should prepare for? etc.

Moved here 2.5 years ago, but my husband and I are childfree. I'm an academic and was able to secure a job offer from Canada, which fast-tracked my immigration processing (4 months in total). Most folks wait a lot longer.

If either of you have a job on the LTSSL you will get a lot more points. But if you have at least 100 points and a job offer that's about as good.

Canadian, married to a kiwi, previously lived in Europe, U.S. & (obviously) Canada. Been here almost 2.5 years. Can't say living in NZ will "expose [y]our kids to a unique way of living," but it's a nice place to live!
