New Zealand

In 2011/12, inflows of foreigners reached almost 62 000 and outflows just over 25 000, resulting in a net inflow of over 36 000 foreigners in New Zealand, up from 33 800 in the previous year. Net outflows of New Zealanders surpassed 39 000, up from 30 000 the previous year, as more New Zealanders left and fewer came back, in particular to and from Australia. The movement of New Zealanders to and from Australia is closely related to economic conditions in both countries, with the recent relative strength of the Australian labour market likely encouraging trans-Tasman migration away from New Zealand. Overall, in 2011/12 there was a net outflow of 3 200 people, down from a net inflow of 3 900 in the previous year.
