New Zealand visa issues

Many people are attracted to New Zealand due to simplified visa rules. You do not need a visa or permit for New Zealand if you are an Australian citizen or permanent Australian resident and your passport is valid until three month before your departure. If your Australian passport expires soon, you can apply for a new one online through the Australian Passport Office website. Usually it takes 10 days to proceed. Basically every Australian can go to New Zealand for indefinite period and irrespective of the reason of staying there, which can be either as simple as travelling, or studying or working there.

Cost of living

One of the reasons of moving to New Zealand is cost of living, which is lower than in Australia. The consumer prices are cheaper, the same goes for rental prices, mortgages, food, etc. Keep in mind that salaries are generally also lower. The highest paid jobs are IT specialists, medical specialists, radiation therapist and aerospace engineering. If you have a degree in one of these fields, it would be easier for you to find a better paid job. Most business enterprises are concentrated in the major cities of Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch. Salaries in those cities are generally considered higher than in other regions. Of course, in bigger cities the cost of living is also generally higher.


In New Zealand (as in Australia), people drive on the left side of the road. Going to New Zealand, you should not have any problems with driving license as it is possible to drive with your Australian driving license. This can be done for up to one year, after which you should convert it to New Zealand license.


Australians and New Zealanders have common culture therefore it generally considered an easy transition to adapt to their new country.  The urban societies New Zealand and Australia were created by the British. The official languages of New Zealand are English and Maori. The Maori people have a long and proud culture that is world renowned.


The factor which influences Australians to move to New Zealand is the climate. In New Zealand it is milder and has a smaller difference in temperature between summer and winter. In summer it can be around twenty degrees while in winter from five to fifteen degrees, depending on the region. In Australia, the seasonal temperature fluctuations are quite high and vary from snowing winter and rainy seasons in spring, to hot summers with temperatures of over 40 degrees.
