Default How many are moving on?

Just wondering how many people that currently live in NZ are looking to move either back to UK or another country.

How easy/difficult are you finding getting to another place? How many people would LIKE to move from NZ but cannot afford it yet? What countries are people considering moving to from here?

What are your reasons for wanting to move?

and yes....I am a nosey Bugger!

I'm moving to Dubai in June. Originally from the UK, been here for 5 years, I love it here but want a change and the chance to earn some real money. Will come back here tho rather than the UK. You aren't auntie Helen are you? or the tax man?

This thread would have been great for an open Poll.

We are not currently looking to move from NZ at the moment. However, never say never. We have discussed perhaps moving from here in the future.

Generally happy here but would not dismiss the chance of going to Oz in the future, mainly to be better off. That nasty Auntie Helen keeps taking our hard-earned dosh :curse:

Mrs V is less happy about this as her view of Oz is mainly wildlife based, that is, she believes every creature will try to kill her via teeth or venom. She can't accept that people actually survive there.

I'm here on a two year work to residency, so will make me mind up later.

Some issues I'm pondering
My work wants to invest in my future and send me to uni for post grad qualifications, they will then promote me. They will only send me to uni if I have residency and have asked me to change from my work visa at my expense.

The internet is lousy here.

I hate being so many flights away from my daughter. I deally would like to be one flight away.

The internet is lousy here.

There is so much to see/live/experience in the world, so little life.

The internet is lousy here.

I really can see myself living on a longer basis here in NZ, I can't put my finger on why cos there is soooo much wrong here, but it makes me feel good generally.

The internet is lousy here.

Money isn't a big issue for me, I'm not well paid but I get by comfortably (no family), but I had a suprising conversation with a colleague today. She has been here 18mths (me 5) and we agreed whilst we both found groceries and some other things expensive here, we are both managing to save money each month. We both were so skint in the UK, sliding slowly into debt every month. I haven't figured out why yet.

Oh yeah and the internet isn;t so great here. I used to download a lot of TV in the UK and then have my own TV on demand. I have improved the speed enough to see my little girl on video skype now which is great (cos I can stay) but download is impossible.

Hiya - I'm from ROI and I often think of suggesting there as an alternative to people when they're not sure about here. It's very similar, especially if you're outside Dublin but there's loads more money over there What part are you moving to?

All anyone needs is a ticket. I'm not being blase or anything like that but WHY would you waste the best years of your life being somewhere you don't want to be? Just do it! the same way as people are told to just do it and come here the same is true for the reverse! Yes, it may cost you money. But, stress will cost you your life.
