Moving to New Zealand from Singapore

New Zealand is a beautiful country and has hosted a lot of people from other countries in the past and still continues to host them. While being a Singaporean, you are bound to feel a little out of place when you move to New Zealand. Things can be a little difficult for you to set up a normal life for the first few days. For those few days, here are a few tips you can consider to get going in a comparatively smooth manner.

  • Cost of Living is quite less

When compared to Singapore, New Zealand has a lower cost of living. You can find this change when you move newly to New Zealand. You will see that Auckland is way cheaper than Singapore. There are other cities as well which are light on the pocket in New Zealand.  So, you need not worry about the expenses here.

  • Job Opportunity

Singaporeans have been successfully given jobs in the past in New Zealand. Furthermore, due to market expansion, New Zealand is short of certain skills and if you have any of them, you are surely to get a job here in New Zealand. There are a lot of job opportunities and the need for expertise is prevalent in here.

  • Different pastimes

As a Singaporean, you must be used to the hustle and the bustle in the markets and the crowds in the shopping malls. But, in New Zealand, you are going to find plenty of accessible natural beauty spots as the country has a large area of open spaces wherein you can go for long walks, cycling and long drives. You will get used to the peaceful environment and the soothing serenity here.

  • The Weather and the Services

The climate of Singapore is the exact opposite of what it is in New Zealand. For those moving to New Zealand, you must remember that it can get really cold and wet during winters and you will experience a chilly atmosphere throughout the year unlike in Singapore. Furthermore, due to the lack of labor, services are really costly and you need to do things yourself most of the time.

  • Use packers and movers

Even though New Zealand sounds less expensive, you surely don’t want to waste money on what you already have. Packers and movers make your shifting hassle free and easy. They will take care of all the paper work and you are sure to get your things safe and secure.
