New Zealand has a points-based immigration system similar to Australia. Applicants must score 100 points based on family ties living in New Zealand, employment, work experience, and qualifications. Each case is then assessed and the applicant granted a temporary visa while a further application process takes place. There are various different visas depending on whether you’re moving for long term work or permanent resident status.
If you are living and working in New Zealand, you’re required by law to pay tax within the country. You’ll be issued by a tax number through your employer or you’ll need to apply for one if working self-employed. You may also be required to complete a P85 declaration before leaving the UK to state you’ll be paying taxes in your new country of residence. If you’re retaining UK property that you’re renting out, savings or investments in the UK, then you’ll also need to complete an R105 which must then be passed on to your bank.
If you have a full UK license, you can use it in New Zealand for up to one year, you’ll then have to apply for a New Zealand license. It’s a legal requirement to carry your driving license when driving. New Zealanders drive on the left like the UK, making driving very familiar.
