Hi Thermo1988,

Congrats on taking the 1st step on what is a huge change for you and your young family. There is a lot to consider, especially taking into account further changes to the immigration settings in December. When is it that you are looking to arrive in NZ?

We spent our whole 11 years in NZ in Auckland, and one of the key decisions to make is where to base yourself. I would always recommend trying to keep within a short commutable distance of your workplace, but there is obviously a number of factors to consider, not least, affordability. Public transport is getting better, but still inferior when compared to even the smaller cities in the UK.

I'm sure that you have many queries, so please feel free to send me a message about any aspect of the relocation process and I'll do my very best to help.

I am in the early stages of trying to move to NZ with my husband and our kitties. Any information on how to find housing, getting set up in general, and how others have transported their pets overseas would be great!
