New Zealand Is Recruiting Americans! See the Jobs and Apply.

We hear from thousands of Americans each week who want to move abroad, and New Zealand is one of their top choices. It’s also one of the most challenging to move to.

Thanks to its stunning natural landscapes, kind citizens, and progressive social government, aspiring U.S. emigrants continually ask us how they can become Kiwis.

Unfortunately, there have been very few ways to move to Aotearoa, as it’s known to the Māori:

  • Attend a New Zealand university
  • Invest millions in the country
  • Find the rare job opportunity that will sponsor a visa
  • Fall in love with a New Zealander

There’s even a persisting internet myth about a New Zealand town that will pay you to move there, but that was never the case.

Thanks to a new campaign to recruit Americans, finding a job in New Zealand is now easier than ever, and it’s not a myth! Here are some top roles and how to apply.

This European Country Goes Mega Viral for Hiring Americans

austria slideshow 2020 jpg

In 2022, 76,221 Americans moved to the European Union. The largest group, 12,220, moved to France. Still, many Americans who want to move to Europe are concerned about being able to afford some of the pricier destinations and are worried about finding a job. Most countries in Europe don’t offer a digital nomad visa for Americans working remotely, so you’re only able to stay 90 days at a stretch in the E.U.

That may be why 2.3 million people on TikTok have watched this video featuring a less-popular country that’s actively recruiting people in many job roles, including engineers, accountants, servers, retail workers, chefs, and more.
