The international removals experts at Interdean have commented on the latest figures which reveal that most migrants choosing to live in New Zealand are from the UK, China, and India.
It has been reported by Expat Forum that arrivals to New Zealand reached a new record in November 2013, with migrant arrivals reaching a total of 93,000. It is thought that a high number of arrivals from overseas paired with fewer individuals choosing to move to Australia has contributed to the record figures. Expat Forum reports that the highest number of migrants came from the United Kingdom with a total of 5900, followed by China with 5600 and India at 5300.
The figures, released by Statistics New Zealand, also revealed that the number of visitors to New Zealand reached a record high, with an increase of 8% when compared to the same period in 2012. The number of visitors reached a total of 251,100 in November 2013 and, on a yearly basis, the figures have increased by 5% to reach a total of 2.7 million.
As an international removals company with a wealth of experience in helping businesses, individuals, and families move overseas to New Zealand the specialists at Interdean were naturally interested in the release of these figures. A representative for the company offered their thoughts on the data:
“New Zealand has always been a popular location among expats, and these figures highlight how popular this location has become in the last year. There are many reasons that expats choose to live in New Zealand, with a higher quality of life, the good weather, and employment opportunities just some of the reasons cited by expats. Individuals from the UK can offer a great deal to New Zealand, and vice versa, so it is welcome news that migrants from the United Kingdom contribute significantly to these figures. We look forward to following developments of these figures and helping more individuals, families, and businesses move to New Zealand.”
