New Zealand has been ranked second-worst place in the world to move by immigrants, according to a survey.
The expatriate networking organisation InterNations surveyed nearly 12,000 respondents of 177 different nationalities, living in 181 countries. Respondents were asked how their new homes performed on factors including quality of life, cost of living, safety, financial outlook, bureuacracy, and ease of fitting in.
In a resulting ranking of 52 countries – those for whom there was a large enough sample size – Aotearoa New Zealand ranked in the doldrums, at 51. It was beaten to the bottom by Kuwait.

Ironically an article in the news (newshub) today to support what I said previously.
"Cost of Living: MYOB poll shows more than 1 million Kiwis actively considering leaving NZ
When asked why they were considering a move abroad, half said they could get a better salary, 44 percent said it's for a better quality of life or the cost of living is better overseas while 34 percent wanted to experience living and working in another country."

Population of NZ is about 5m, so 1/5th want to leave for better lifestyle.

If you dont have real wealth you will have a very poor lifestyle in NZ. New immigrants work themselves to death as modern slaves trying to obtain a lifestyle reserved for rich land-owners and wealthy farmers. You will never get there especially not if you rely on a salary as income as the system is heavily geared against you. As a new immigrant you will be doing most of the work because Kiwi's really dont like to work, just dont expect to paid for your time and if you complain they'll get your visa cancelled and kick you out of the country. Best to go where your skills will be appreciated, NZ is not it.
