Nine out of ten New Zealand skilled migrants are content with new life

Almost all skilled business migrants to New Zealand are content with their new life in the country, according to recent survey finding from the New Zealand Department of Labour’s immigration research team.

Migrants were surveys 12 months after moving to the country on a New Zealand Visa, and nine in ten skilled migrants (or 89 per cent) reported they were satisfied or very satisfied with life in New Zealand and 92 per cent said they would recommend New Zealand to others as a place to come and live.

The New Zealand Immigration research team, IMSED Research, undertakes the Settlement Experience Feedback Survey every year to collect the initial settlement experience of skilled/business stream migrants.

Other findings of the survey include:
