Default Retirement

Hello
Can anyone tell me what the situation is regarding purchasing a house in NZ and living there for part of the year, without working (ie retired)?
Thanks

Hi there

Are you a British Citizen? If so, you can visit NZ as a visitor for up to 6 months a year without needing a visa...have a look here... http://www.immigration.govt.nz/NR/rd.../1018Aug21.pdf

Hope this helps...

Hi,
Thanks for the link and the info. Yes, I am British, although my husband isn't - nothing's ever simple, but he'd just have to get a visitors visa I suppose.

New Zealand real estate agents will let anyone buy property, regardless of residency rights. Shania Twain bought two stations down Wanaka way and she's about as kiwi as George Bush.

There are plenty of holiday homes owned by Americans who visit for the summer then go back home.
