Recent numbers from the Department of Internal Affairs of New Zealand has reflected that the number of United States residents who are applying for immigration to the country have definitely gone up. This is as per the report done by the Associated Press via a request on freedom of information.
The report had continued that there were more and more Americans who have shown interest in moving to New Zealand by visiting the website on immigration. The numbers, as compared to the same period a year earlier, were definitely and significantly higher. However, those who really do go ahead with the application are still quite low.
Why only a few go ahead with immigration
Though there may be a variety of reasons as per the huge jump in interested individuals from the US getting interested in immigration to New Zealand, only a few do go ahead with the deed. There are various reasons why this is so. One would be that New Zealand is really far from the United States and that means that those who may have to be immigrants have to spend a huge amount of money just to get there.
Another point could be that New Zealand may still be far from the United States in terms of culture and in terms of environment. For those who are accustomed to what they have seen and grown with in the US, jumping at the opportunity to live in New Zealand may be too big a deal for them. See, New Zealand is mostly a country that has an economy based on farming. It is not as industrial or as commercial as the United States. So those who are not used to that may have a hard time adjusting to the new environment. Thus, their hesitation to actually go ahead with the application.
Those who have chosen to take the jump
One of the people who have taken the jump from the US to New Zealand is Alanna Irving. Irving is 33 years old and she used to be an entrepreneur of a technology startup company which was based in San Francisco. When she was 27, she decided to be an immigrant. Now, she is happily married to a local of the country.
According to her, she has found the country to be quite a remarkable place. Society is far different from what she was used to and she is happy with that. She has seen just how people in New Zealand prioritize different things as compared to what was considered priorities back in the US. She has continued to disclose that in this new country, it is all about equality and that is reflected in the society. Irving continued that the country’s residents think more for the community rather than just for themselves.
