New Zealand Government Receives Record Number of Emigration Enquiries

New Zealand media are reporting that their government’s website has received a huge spike in applications from British nationals in the wake of the referendum vote. Government data has revealed that on the day of the Brexit referendum the New Zealand government website received 998 registrations from British nationals, compared to 109 at the same time the year before.

Typically the Immigration New Zealand website receives 3,000 registrations a month from British nationals interested in moving to, working or investing in New Zealand. In the 49 days following the Brexit vote more than 10,000 British nationals registered their interest – compared with 4,599 during the same period the year before.

On Monday the New Zealand Herald ran a story on the increase on its front page, with an illustration declaring a “British invasion”.

According to Immigration New Zealand, in the year to June, 4,934 Britons were granted residency, 22,633 Britons were granted work visas and 1,176 Britons were granted student visas.

Surrey, UK to Sydney, Australia - December 2020

We have been so impressed with the care taken and the quality of packing, and also realise perhaps how lucky we have been to instigate the move when we did, and then to ask John Mason to do it for us.

D.P. Leeds, UK to Perth, Australia – November 2020

Absolutely one of the best movers I have worked with. Pleasant helpful admin staff and the delivery drivers were absolute angels sorting and moving the boxes where I asked them to. Arrived exactly when they said it would.
