Why South Africans Are Immigrating to New Zealand

Why do so many South Africans immigrate to New Zealand? There are many reasons:

  • Crime,
  • Political Unrest,
  • Lack of employment, and
  • Lack of opportunities for growth.

These are just a few of the reasons why so many people are interested in leaving South Africa.

New Zealand is ranked as one of the best countries to live in and to enjoy a family lifestyle. For many South Africans, it is also about the extremely low crime levels and the outdoor lifestyle that’s similar to that in Africa. Let’s also not forget that New Zealanders thrive on rugby just as much as South African’s do! And all of this is just for starters. New Zealand seems to have captured the hearts of South Africans and for good reason.

The 2013 New Zealand Census revealed just how many South Africans have already made the move to the country. In fact, a little over 54 000 people in New Zealand were born in South Africa. That’s 1.3% of the entire population!

Top Reasons Why South Africans Love to Move to New Zealand

  • It’s one of the safest countries in the world to live.
  • The country is child-friendly. The communities encourage children “to be children”. They are not exposed to crime, unfortunate living arrangements and a lack of education.
  • Cost of living is on par with South Africa: you must simply make wise choices in terms of lifestyle.
  • Excellent public health care is made available to all in New Zealand. There is no need to set private medical aid or care in place.
  • There is a fully integrated and safe public transport system in New Zealand. People can also very safely cycle or walk to work/school.
