New Zealand Residency.

Why New Zealand?

New Zealand is located in the southwest Pacific Ocean, and comprises two large land masses - North and South Island - together with around 600 smaller islands.

Although one of the last countries to be settled by humans, the country is identified as one of the world's most stable and well-governed states, having the British Queen as its monarch. 

As a result of its late discovery, New Zealand has developed a distinct biodiversity of animal, fungal, and plant life, with large mountain ranges and volcanoes, and a rugged coastline.

New Zealand ranks highly in such areas as quality of life, health, education, protection of civil liberties, and economic freedom. 

Historically, extractive industries supplied much of the country’s income together with sealing, whaling, flax and gold, but in the 1980s the country saw significant changes to its economy, and now the service sector dominates, followed closely by industry and agriculture, with tourism also contributing to its GDP.

  Today New Zealand's economy benefits from a high level of innovation and business, and depends greatly on international trade with Australia, the EU, USA and China.
