Default HOW MUCH MONEY

Hi all when we eventually move to New Zealand we will have to rent a house and we will only have about 15 to 20 thousand UK pounds to bring with us do you think this will be enough to see us through the first 6 months untill i am also able to find work as well.

Hello Tony, we came and intially only converted enough money for $25,000 NZ dollars. We found jobs that allowed us to pay much of our way, but were six months before we had enough income to meet our expenses. We went through about $12,000 of this money but that also included the purchase of a car of about $6,000. So, yes, you will be fine. Come to Rangiora, it is so much fun.
