How Can We Help
Moving to New Zealand
Pondering a lifestyle move to New Zealand? Or perhaps you have started the process of migrating here already. At Westpac we realise it’s a big decision and there’s lots to organise. Our specialist bankers are here to help at every stage, no matter where in the world you are right now.
Why New Zealand?
Landscape and lifestyle attract many migrants to New Zealand. But the employment, education and investment opportunities here may surprise you as well.
We want to make your move to New Zealand as hassle-free as possible. Here are some practical steps you should think about.
