The net inflow of migrants to New Zealand has slowed over the past year as the number of departures, mainly to Australia, has been rising.

New Zealand immigration

The net New Zealand immigration numbers have slowed as more continue to depart the country.

Last month there was a net gain of 1400 permanent and long-term migrants, or 600 when adjusted for seasonal effects, the same as in October, Statistics New Zealand said.

In the year ended November, there was a net gain of 11,500 from New Zealand immigration, which is close to the average annual gain of 11,900 over the past 20 years.

As Australian employment growth continues to outperform labour market conditions in New Zealand it is expected departures will continue to rise.
Permanent and long-term migrants are defined, on the arrivals side, as overseas migrants who intend to stay in New Zealand for at least a year and New Zealanders returning after an absence of at least a year.

On the departures side, this included New Zealand residents leaving for at least a year plus overseas visitors departing after a stay of a year or more.
