Why choose New Zealand:
The impact of COVID-19, a pandemic that has affected the whole world, is devasting and disturbing for all countries around the globe. The pandemic has affected millions of people. However very few countries were able to return to their normal living and fortunately this includes New Zealand.
New Zealand has been highly praised for successfully addressing the challenges posed by COVID-19 and essentially almost eradicating it from the country. Although we remain at Alert Level 1, life is fairly normal. With cases generally coming from those in MIQ facilities, we can eat out, shop, go to beaches, visit family, attend concerts, have gatherings, work, travel and holiday within New Zealand.
New Zealand ranks high globally in many areas including public health, income and wealth, quality of natural environment, personal security, civic engagement, housing, subjective well-being, education and skills, jobs and earnings, access to justice, low crime rate and corruption and healthy social connection.
