Why New Zealand? (1:36)

Adrian Matthews - I think the key thing is to do your research and to have a good look around. Try and form some networks.

Bob Stimson - The more homework you can do, the smoother the transition will be.

George Manjooran - If you study the market well, it’s easy to get a job in New Zealand.

Adrian Matthews - The outdoors life is great out here. There’s a lot more space and the national parks are really accessible.

Rita Csako - The work-life balance here, I think, is much better.

John and Tina Evangelista - John: The kiwis have their own way of doing things and I think they’re more fun loving and more relaxed.

Diego & Gisele Abrianos - Giselle: Kiwis are so friendly as well. So we’re thinking about growing our family here.

John and Tina Evangelista - Tina: There’s lots of cultural diversity so wherever you come from you’re bound to bump into someone else who comes from the same country you came from.

Nicholina Adjei -The highlight of moving to New Zealand was the openness and the friendliness of the people.

Simon Shaw - People think it’s a long commute if you drive more than 15 or 20 minutes here.

George Manjooran - Apartments are all really close by so everything is easily accessible.

Lindsey Crummet  - New Zealand has become a second home to me.  I’d have to say it’s a small country with really big personality.

Diego & Gisele Abrianos – Diego: I’m saying to myself, man what a good choice to make for a life. What a good choice. (Giselle: Exactly).
