Over the past few years, a large number of people have asked me questions about New Zealand.  I have come to realise that the questions I am asked are mostly about the same few subjects.  So below I have made my own FAQ (frequently asked questions) with information you may find useful.


Q. What is the weather like in New Zealand? I’ve heard its much warmer than the UK?

A. To find out what the weather is today at any location in New Zealand, visit the website from the Metservice.


Q. What do houses look like in New Zealand? Are they brick houses like the UK or wooden houses like the US? How much do they cost? A. To see for yourself, check out this website with listings of property throughout New Zealand. The site lists not only residential houses for sale, but also businesses and farms, and houses to rent. Visit the RealEstate website.


Q. What about emigrating to New Zealand?

A. There are number of avenues you can take to move to New Zealand. Some of these include student exchange, working holiday, skilled migrant, business migrant and so on. There are particular skills in short supply in New Zealand, so those with these skills will be in an advantageous position. The skills that are in high demand in New Zealand are as follows: Engineering; Teaching; Biotechnology; Creative New Zealand; Healthcare; and Information Technology. Visit the Immigration website.


Q. Is there a single website where I can find general information on New Zealand?

A. Yes, go to the New Zealand government wide website.
