New Zealand’s booming migration

By Steve Brennan

Annual net migration reached 70,400 in November, setting a new record, driven by more migrants from the US, Australia and Malaysia. Migrant arrivals rose 4.8 per cent to 126,7000 in the year, also a new record, while migrant departures dipped 1.6 per cent to 56,300.

New Zealand’s booming migration and tourism set new records in November, with arrivals continuing to increase and departures steadily lower.

Net permanent and long-term migration was dominated by arrivals from Asia, who made up about half of the 70,400 arrivals. Some 10,280 migrants came from China, up 17 per cent from a year earlier, while 9,100 came from India, down 31 per cent.

Of those new migrants who arrived in the year, a net 33,536, or 48 pe rcent, settled in Auckland, followed by a net 9.5 per cent moving to Canterbury, net 5.1 per cent going to Wellington and net 3.9 per cent settling in Waikato.
