New Zealand Welcomes You
New Zealand is a modern country with a rich cultural heritage. Comparable in size and shape to the United Kingdom or Japan, it is a stable English-speaking democracy with a population of approximately 4.7 million people, making it one of the least crowded countries in the world.
New Zealand consists of two main islands in the South Pacific, three hours east of Australia by plane or nine to ten hours direct flight from Singapore. Internationally, the country is known for the beauty of the landscape. The cities are clean, open and lively, with Auckland in particular showing many cultural influences.
New Zealanders are well-travelled, outward looking and famously hospitable people with a lively interest in other cultures. An education here is frequently the beginning of lifelong friendships.
New Zealand is a rich mix of cultures - including European, Maori, Asian and Pacific peoples. New Zealanders have made significant contributions to the world of science and technology, creative arts, medicine, conservation, food, wine, sports and fashion.
Beyond the warm welcome, you will find a place where safety and security are valued.
