What to expect from moving to New Zealand

Lots of Britons now emigrate to New Zealand to enjoy their relaxed way of life, the sunshine, the quality of life, greater employment opportunities and much more. Most expats who now live and work in New Zealand report that they had previously visited the country on holidays and then made the decision to move, so it's important to consider different locations you are interested in and know what to expect. If you are chasing big city jobs and want to live in a waterfront city, you should look at Auckland, whereas if you want to be surrounded by mountains then Queenstown is more up your street.

Higher cost of living in New Zealand

When compared to the cost of living in the UK, generally speaking the cost of living in New Zealand is higher. You may find the cost of food and eating out to be more expensive, but with New Zealand's strong market and economy offering higher salaries than what most UK citizens are used to, many who have made the move find that finances are not as big an issue as expected.

Getting a New Zealand visa

New Zealand have strict immigration rules in place so if you're moving here, make sure you research the correct visa, and let us to assist you in getting it. New Zealand visas are more difficult to apply for in that the visa quotas are low for applicants from most countries and the application period is short; in fact it only opens once a year. Those over 18 years of age who want to live and work permanently in New Zealand are expected to have already received a job offer prior to their move, must meet all health, character and English ability requirements, and have higher education qualifications to classify as a skilled migrant for the visa. 

You might not qualify for the Skilled Migrant visa, so there are numerous other visas and permits that could apply to you which are geared towards employment such as the Work to Residence visa. You should have a look on the Immigration New Zealand website for more information regarding visas. Our team are happy to assist with your visa questions when we help with your international removal.

Shipping options

Britannia Pink & Jones have been assisting people with international shipping for decades. Our previous experience in moving to New Zealand and extensive knowledge of the New Zealand removals system means we can help you with every part of the process. With us, shipping your belongings to New Zealand will be easy. Your options are to send everything by either sea or air.

The latter is quicker so if there is an urgency to get your effects delivered let us know and we can coordinate that, but you should note it's more expensive than shipping in a container over sea. We take pride in ensuring your belongings are handled with the utmost care, arriving in New Zealand in the same, protected condition you left them in.

Restricted items at New Zealand Customs

It can take a while after your belongings have arrived into New Zealand for them to pass through customs clearance and delivery. Like every country, New Zealand has specific criteria regarding what can and cannot be imported in. Restrictions are put on certain imports to protect New Zealand's environment, economy and community.

Duty-free entry is granted to shipments of household goods and personal effects, but it's always a good idea to check what you are planning on bringing is definitely allowed in so you avoid unnecessary penalties. Before moving to New Zealand, ensure you check with the full list on the official New Zealand Customs Service website that the goods you're importing are accepted. 

The following items are included in the list of restricted items and will need approval if you are to bring them into New Zealand:

  • Agricultural and animal products
  • Alcohol
  • Children's crayons and paints
  • Firearms and weapons such as flick knives, butterfly knives, swordsticks, knuckle-dusters
  • Inflammable goods and substances
  • Ivory
  • Medicines and prescribed drugs
  • Narcotics and dangerous goods
  • Objectionable materials
  • Plants and plant products
  • Tobacco

From the initial meeting with Luke to the lovely guys unpacking our belongings into our new house - the service was friendly and professional. They looked after our belongings and were very friendly. I would recommend them to everyone I know. Thank you so much. It was a real pleasure!

Yes, would definitely recommend! Moves are stressful but with these guys, they made it look easy and smooth. All parts of the moving experience was handled professionally from Paul and Luke in Sales, Alberto, Vinny and Shirley co-ordinating in the office to the removal team of Ryan, Colin and Martin. All very friendly and there to put your mind at rest. We moved over a 2 day period.
