NZ Ready planning tool

NZ Ready is a free online tool to help you plan your move to New Zealand, ensuring you know how things work here and have a hassle-free move.

It will ask a few questions about your circumstances (eg. if you have children), then automatically tailor a set of relevant tasks with detailed information and links to trusted websites . It covers topic such as healthcare, education, getting a job and where in New Zealand to live.

You can keep track of the tasks you have completed and add notes and calendar reminders to help you remember everything you need to do.

Hear how Nick and his family used the tool to plan their move.
