Government appear to make U-turn on Immigration Cuts

Following a backlash from business groups and the regions, the New Zealand Government is likely to tweak some of its planned immigration cuts that were announced back in April this year.

Prime Minister Bill English said this week that the proposals would still "largely" go ahead, but "with some adjustments".

Regional mayors, farming and hospitality groups have voiced their concern to the Government, stating that the proposed rule changes "were a bit tight", he told TVNZ.

The changes were announced in April and include a minimum income of $49,000 for a skilled migrant visa, a 3 year limit for lower skilled workers followed by a stand-down period, as well as stricter rules for the partners and children of workers.

However, critics have disagreed, arguing that it is already hard enough to source workers in industries such as hospitality and farming. 

Prime Minister Bill English said on TVNZ 1's Breakfast he wants the "right balance of skills".

He said there was a strong demand for workers, but they "also want to make sure New Zealanders get the jobs they should be able to get".  

Mr English said the incoming changes would not be scrapped, but they would listen to the feedback given. The new plan will be revealed in the next few weeks.

NZ FAQ Series: Population

As of July 2017, the estimated resident population of New Zealand was 4.59 million. On average, one person is born in New Zealand every eight minutes and one migrant arrives every two hours.

Source: www.stats.govt.nz

Source: www.stats.govt.nz

New Zealand’s entire population could fit comfortably several times over into what most people classify as cities. In New Zealand, any area with a population upwards of 20,000 people is liable to be referred to as a city. However, if we define a city as a major urban centre housing a significant proportion of a nation’s population and large conglomeration of business enterprises and/or government departments, New Zealand has three: Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

 

Interesting Facts

  • While many people immigrate to New Zealand, many New Zealanders emigrate to other countries, meaning its net migration balance is quite volatile

  • Three out of every four New Zealanders live on the North Island.

  • New Zealand’s population is not projected to reach five million until the mid-2020s and six million until 2061.

  • The median age of the population is 37 years. Children (aged 0-14) make up 20% of the population, people of working age (15-64) make up 66% and those of retirement age (65+) 14%.

  • There are 97 males for every 100 females in New Zealand.

  • Maoris are estimated to account for 682,200 of the population.

Social Customs

Like many parts of the New World, New Zealand makes a virtue of its egalitarianism and Kiwis take an informal approach to everything from dressing and dining to greeting others and using the English language.

As a general rule, Kiwis are friendly, polite and hospitable but may come across as reserved to those from more outgoing cultures.

There can be marked differences between the way Maoris and Pakeha (New Zealanders of European background) behave. Maoris are friendly and place great value on hospitality, but have a range of protocols about things such as howvisitors should be welcomed and farewelled.

In many respects, New Zealanders of Anglo-Celtic background remain quite British, from their obsession with discussing the weather through to their distance for self-promotion.

Are you an international graduate wanting to stay in NZ?

International students studying in New Zealand might be considering what to do next and wondering what visa options are available to them and their families in New Zealand.

“If you’re looking for immigration advice about the options you have to stay in New Zealand after your studies, check your adviser is a Licensed Immigration Adviser or exempt person, such as a New Zealand lawyer,” says Registrar of the Immigration Advisers Authority (IAA) Catherine Albiston. The IAA is a New Zealand government body set up to protect individuals and families looking for immigration advice. We are listed on the IAA’s register of licensed immigration advisers.

"If students need personalised immigration help, it is important to only seek it from people who can legally give New Zealand immigration advice,” adds Ms Albiston.

“Holding an immigration adviser licence means the individual has met competency standards and must be professional. Visa applicants need to be honest with Immigration New Zealand and declare any help received when completing a visa application form. If applicants are not honest, the visa application may be declined and Immigration New Zealand may refuse future visa applications.

“Our message to students seeking immigration advice is to check if the person is a Licensed Immigration Adviser or exempt.”

All Immigration Advisers at Migration Associates are licensed by the IAA and visa information is available on our website. If you're a student in need of personalised immigration help, get in touch with our friendly team today and we'll be happy to assist you.
