I do find it amusing/interesting that some of the posts above are from people who don't live and have never lived in NZ 🤷‍♀️

Re: Emigrating to NZ

The thing is, a lot of what's been said above - positive, negative, balanced (call it what you will) is all moot until the OP has the ability to get a visa. In this current climate will be tricky...

Re: Emigrating to NZ

We've been here 8 years now. Always enjoyed life in NZ, have absolutely no interest in living in the UK.

We are financially secure, earn well, have good jobs, travel well (used to any way!) and...

Re: I Need To Renew My NZ Passport to Get Home

Yeah I dunno. I reckon I would rather put up with 'through the nose food prices' and shitty driving standards than contract a potentially lethal virus that could effect me for the rest of my life... 🤷

Re: Coronavirus

Lock downs are bad for the economy but so are sick people. You can't go any where or buy anything when you're sick or worse so it's a bit of a double edged sword economy wise. Look what happened in...

Re: Coronavirus

Fair enough, we have to live in hope that some day we will go overseas again!

Most airlines will be fine, people will have seriously itchy feet after all this and will want to book trips. It might...

Re: Coronavirus

I feel that if a person cannot afford quarantine fees upon returning to the country then don't go in the first place. I know the rules say that if you can't afford it then you don't have to pay, but...

Re: Coronavirus

No, you shouldn't be exempt. It's your choice to go on holiday, you don't have to go. Why should the tax payer pick up your quarantine tab when it's a holiday for you and not an essential trip? I...

Re: Border closures and exceptions

I think it's fair enough to start charging certain people in certain situations who are returning. There isn't an unlimited pot of money and quarantine is going to be needed for many months. For...
