New Zealand is facing Migration Surge in 2015

New Zealand is facing Migration Surge in 2015

As of June 22, 2015, the annual net migration of the year has reached 58,000, says Statistics New Zealand (SNZ). According to the data, most of them travelled here for study reasons.

Among the new 15,218 arrivals, 8072 were on student visas, 3970 were on work visas, 1979 were New Zealanders and Australians and 904 were for long-term residency. Immigration to Christchurch was dominant in the tallied numbers.

Considering the months of March, April, May, where migration was most rampant, total of migrant arrivals of 2015 can close at almost 60,000. At this rate, this migration activity can boost national population by 1.3%, says Craig Ebert, Bank of New Zealand (BNZ) senior economist.

This sudden surge in migration can potentially triple the country’s population growth, which has had 1.84% inflation in March this year. This activity can be explained by several factors, including growing foreign interest in education opportunities, knowledge of the county’s fertile business industries and the strengthened services of migration assistance providers.

Business Immigration, one of these trusted providers, offers comprehensive services to foreigners wishing to relocate to New Zealand, either for work, training, or permanent residence.

The company flies to different cities to meet with potential clients and discuss options that meet their requirements, including selection of town and city. This personalised approach establishes trust and gives way for a smoother migration process.

In cases where face-to-face meetings cannot be done, the company interacts with their clients through the webcam and conducts an interview to gain more knowledge about them. From the collected information, the company determines the most appropriate settlement and set of services for their clients.

Their services extend to clients all over the world, including Romania, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Philippines, South Korea, Cairo, Taiwan Jordan and many others.
