So far away, for what?

Clean and Cool
New Zealand is far away from all the haze and pollution. The air is crisp and the sky a crackling blue. As the sun dips beneath the endless horizon, the sky lights up with millions of stars.
Even better, there are four seasons to admire, from the fall of leaves in autumn, to the warmth and busyness of summer.
New Zealanders are all about the outdoors. Hiking, fishing, skiing, boating, bungy, caving, off-road driving, jet boating, you name it.
New Zealanders love to show off their beautiful country. In fact, with the already diverse community, you will always feel welcome. New Zealand has whopping 40% non-white demographic.
Everyone speaks English, so moving will feel like a breeze. What’s more, practices are even seeking your foreign-language speaking skills because of the diversity of the population in the country.
With five international airports in a tiny nation, worldwide connectivity is hassle-free.
New Zealand’s education is world class. Apart from a strong academic focus, your child’s school will ensure their all-round development. Even better, school is free along with first year of university, and there is an interest free loan for university studies. There is a plethora of choices, from the local NCEA board, to Cambridge, IGCSE and IB.
Great Working Conditions
Work as you like. 24 hours, 28 hours, 32 hours, whatever you like. Not many GPs even work 40 hours. And even better, there’s no unpaid over time! On top of this, the typical boss is very chilled out.
Not feeling well, can’t join for the day, no problem. You are sick and your boss understands.
The healthcare system for your family in New Zealand is worldclass. If you are a work permit holder, PR or citizen, then specialist and hospital care at secondary and tertiary levels is free. And kids till 14 are completely free even in the GP clinics.
Easy PR and Citizenship
GP’s and other health professionals score high points and easily get permanent residence. And even better, being a PR is pretty much like being a citizen in New Zealand. If you are a Singaporean or Australian, you can even buy property in New Zealand without any restrictions.
Easy fellowship for GPs
RNZCGP promotes GP’s to undergo vocational training (though not mandatory). Fellowship is easy to acquire while you are working. Clinics would happily support you in this.
Cars fanaticism is allowed
Yes you can keep a craze for cars in New Zealand. No crazy taxes and no compulsory insurance. Its quite normal for people in New Zealand to have three, four, five cars in a household.
There’s all kinds of food
No matter what cuisine you fancy, New Zealand has it sorted. From large Asian style food courts in malls to curry places scattered throughout towns, New Zealand has it all for you.
What about retirement?
New Zealand is your dream retirement location. National pension for everyone after 65 and no retirement age for GPs.
(But who wants to work at 65 huh? Just in case)
