You acquire citizenship if you were born in New Zealand, Njue, the Cook Islands or Tokelau before 1 January 2006. Children born on or after 1 January 2006 are only New Zealand citizens if one of their parents was a citizen or a permanent resident of New Zealand at the time of the child’s birth. You may acquire citizenship by descent to a person born or adopted outside New Zealand with a parent who is a New Zealand citizen otherwise than by descent at the time of birth or the final adoption order.

To receive New Zealand citizenship by grant, you must either fulfill the general requirements or qualify for a special grant. If you are granted a New Zealand citizenship you must attend a ceremony unless you are under the age of 16, already a New Zealand citizen by descent or grant citizenship on the basis of birth outside New Zealand to a New Zealand citizen mother. You may receive a special grant of New Zealand citizenship if you have a parent who at the time of birth was a New Zealand citizen by descent, was born outside New Zealand on or after 1 January 1949 or demonstrate ongoing link with New Zealand.

You may apply for general grant of New Zealand citizenship if:

• You are entitled to be in New Zealand indefinitely

• If you intend to continue living in New Zealand

• You are of a good character

• You have sufficient knowledge of the English language

• Demonstrate an understanding of the responsibilities and privileges of a being a New Zealand citizen.

New Zealand is a peaceful country and has natural beauty which is the main reason for many foreigners living in New Zealand. New Zealand continues to receive top scores for respect for human rights, due to its limited violent demonstrations and low homicide rate. New Zealand has an above average employment rate compared to other neighboring countries making your chances of living in New Zealand comfortably higher.

The price of utilities in New Zealand varies according to a lot of factors and one of the most important of them is the region where you choose to live. The more you nearer to the city, the more expensive life will be. There are a wide range of fresh produce, meat, seafood, bakery items and an increasing number of vegetables. The farmer offers low prices on seasonal fruits and vegetable. New Zealand cities fare well in terms of worldwide quality of living standards, making them attractive destinations for migrants.
