Hello,
I am really hoping you can help......
I have been advised that I meet the Skilled Worker criteria however I am struggling to work out how the visa system works.
I have been advised by a number of companies they can support me with this but at a pricey costs of £2000!!

I am keen to find out how others have applied and been successful in migrating across to NZ as an ex-pat and what visas they have applied for, how to do it, what websites I would need to use etc...

I am a single(sigh), 36…

We are going to be traveling to Queenstown this October for our honeymoon. We will be in NZ for 8 days and 8 nights. Right now, we are staying in Queenstown the entire time, but I would like to take one or two nights to travel somewhere else on the island and try to stay at a different location (or multiple locations). We'd like to do some hiking and see other sites (already planning to do the Milford Sound and a day of wineries).

Any recommendations on where to go/stay and the best way to do…

Hi Guys :)
My boyfriend & I (24 and 25) are backpacking New Zealand for a few months over summer, and surprise surprise, want to do it as cheap as possible not only to save money but to have more local interactions than on tour buses/stays at chain hostels etc. We are both very well traveled throughout Asia so are somewhat experienced travellers.

We primarily are planning on hitchhiking and camping but am wondering for those times we don't, the cheapest way to travel. We are not wanting to…

I have tried to endlessly google but all information was quite out of date.
We are flying into Wellington and wondering the cheapest way to get from Wellington…

We are a couple from Northern California going on a trip around South Island from Sept - early Oct, primarily to see penguins. As time permits, we'd also love to see the beautiful scenery on some short hikes. We'll have 14 full days there. It's a bit difficult to figure out from guidebooks which penguin locations to prioritize. For example, should we try to go to Stewart Island and go on a bird watching tour there, or should we spend more time around Banks Peninsula (for the white-flippered…

Hello!
I will be coming to live in NZ from the US next month on a one-year working holiday visa. I'm starting to think about what to pack and looking for some advice. Recently I saw on another forum that a woman had a hard time finding an affordable electric heating pad in NZ, which is random, but it made me wonder if there are any other things that are either difficult to find in NZ or so expensive that it would be worth bringing with me? For example, I have an old pair of Merrill hiking shoes…

Hi everyone, I'm trying to book a 1way flight to Christchurch. Unfortunately it's rather expensive.

Chance upon the following flight:
Arrive at 1.30pm
Depart at 6am

The early departure means that it is rather not worth it to book a hotel, and we will have no transportation as we will be returning our campervan the day before departure.

Any suggestion on what to do if you are having a early hour outbound flight?

Thanks in advance.
