Haere Mai - Welcome to New Zealand

Kia ora and welcome to the land of the long white cloud

A small nation of two islands, New Zealand's spectacular natural beauty and outdoor lifestyle attracts many expats in search of a more balanced way of life. New Zealand is consistently ranked as one of the safest countries in the world to live in and also for the ease with which new arrivals are able to integrate.

Statistics notwithstanding, along with the excitement of moving to a new country comes the challenges; finding accommodation, organising healthcare plans, sorting out schools etc. There's lots to think about when you're moving to another country. One of the most important things you need to do is make sure your finances are in order.

Setting up a bank account, ideally before you arrive is key. This way, you can have your cards and internet banking set up and also arrange to have funds transferred into the account beforehand. This is where HSBC's global connectivity comes into play, making account opening whilst you're still overseas easy. HSBC has been in New Zealand for over 30 years and is ably placed to help you with your banking needs; be it a transactional account to pay your salary into, or a mortgage to buy a home for the family.
