The main problems with working in IT in NZ are that there aren't many jobs, and the pay is much lower than in Australia. And since Kiwis and Aussies have reciprocal working rights, there are a whole lot of Kiwi IT people who've moved to Australia.

I've been told that NZ is seen as a backdoor into Australia.

I don't know if that's a genuine phenomenon or whether it's just a third-hand mutation of some shock jock talking point.

It may have been. It's been locked down a fair bit since then.

It will get you here -- it wont get you PR/Citizenship/Centrelink anymore. ( http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&obj... )
