      Hi Phil,

      We are going to New Zealand too and we already have friends who moved there 2 years ago. It all works on a point system and I know that you ger certain points depending on age - but if you have the right trade you will get loads of points. Have a look on this website below - loads of info on there.


      Also if your wife gets in on her own merit - you will be able to apply with her :) Good luck

      Get the local job paper there, its always the best option when trying to look for a job.
