An estimated 40% of migrants who get residency in New Zealand settle in Auckland. But if our biggest city has a lot of potential to kickstart your stay in New Zealand, the diversity and richness of lesser-known New Zealand regions could further act in your favour as the government is considering incentivising migration to regions, according to a recent New Zealand Herald article. Jobs are varied in trades, oil, forestry, tourism, teaching, and medical sectors. As a reminder, skilled migrants and those applying to live in New Zealand under entrepreneur visas already gain 10 points in the immigration points system if they say they intend to settle outside of Auckland.
This timely piece of news is a great opportunity for New Zealand Shores to announce the upcoming launch of our Explore New Zealand pages, each dedicated to one of our beautiful regions. Initially providing a brief glimpse into each region, these pages will be regularly updated and content-enriched. Stay posted!
