Hello -- I'm writing an article for Where to Retire magazine, and I'm looking to interview Americans who've retired to New Zealand about the legal and financial challenges of retiring overseas. Specifically: -How did you prepare to move overseas? -What do you know now that you wish you knew then? -What advice related to finances and legal issues would you give to those considering a move outside the US? Thank you, Marc Allan mdallan@hotmail.com

For cost of living in NZ and Australia www.numbeo.com Oz visas www.immi.gov.au In Oz you will have to have your own medical insurance cover. Oz in general is expensive to live in. Country towns are cheaper than the big cities.You can buy a car without any problems. Getting your dogs here or to NZ will be costly. NZ visas www.immigration.govt.nz.

What country are you living in now? When are you planning on coming? Best to look at both countries web sites first then see if you still have questions. Local libraries can help with this. Cheers, (American University teacher, late 60's living in NZ have travelled to Australia a number of times.)

Hi - I am an American with a wife and 6 month old son - I have the opportunity to possibly work remotely for my current US employer in New Zealand for a year. Any recommendations? I.e. would you recommend Wellington or Auckland? Also are there visa opportunities for this type of arrangement? Thanks so much!
rjdibert replied most recently with:
Go to the official NZ web sites for this sort of info but I agree, as the other fellow wrote, that it would be best to go through your employe. Ck with your local embassy as well. But realise that even a temp visa, (I held a perm residency when I first came to teach on a 2 year contract in 95,)can take months and months to complete. If you have any previous drug or incarcerations of any type yur chances are nil . If I were you I would take a vacation here instead! Given the choice, Auckland is warmer but much more expensive. Wellington you can easily get about without a car, not likely in Auckland and house hunting there unless you are wealthy could take you most of your 6 months! Remember this is not the states and Auckland is only a small city by US standards. Wellington is far more charming. Cheers, living 2.5 hours north of Welly for almost 20 years now!

For visa information and applications www.immigration.govt.nz. I am sure your employer needs to arrange a visa for you. If you are caught working you will be deported and not allowed back for a few years. For cost of living www.numbeo.com House rentals are high especially in Auckland, Wellington not much better. Do a Google search for this.

The petrochemical industry in NZ is very small so may not be many work opportunities for you. For cost of living www.numbeo.com for visa information and applications www.immigration.govt.nz Check NZ govt website regarding taxes.
