Immigration to New Zealand
New Zealand has always been high on the agenda of places to visit, due to it’s spectacular scenery and relaxed life-style. In recent years many of these travelers have decided to live their dream and make New Zealand their permanent home by emigrating due to the work-life balance this country affords them as well as its growing economy, providing many opportunities for skilled migrants.
A significant skills shortage exists in New Zealand, where some of the professions still in demand include: Nursing, computing professionals, engineering, medical staff, boat builders and electricians. The New Zealand Immigration Service (NZIS) has identified the importance of these skilled migrants and has structured its migrant policy around these skills shortages.
