In the event, if you are staying in a hostel or hotel when you arrive at New Zealand, you will likely be able to get a letter from them to say that you are ‘living’ there. Prepared yourself for this and arrange all this before you arrive while you are preparing to move to New Zealand.
New Zealand IRD Number
In order to be paid by your employer, you will need an IRD number. This is used for all your tax, entitlement and personal details that Inland Revenue holds.
