How to Transfer Money from Canada to New Zealand

Summary

As members of the British Commonwealth, Canada and New Zealand share a commitment to multilateralism. In addition to Australia, the countries maintain an informal alliance (Canada-Australia-New Zealand alliance, CANZ) within the United Nations. The two countries enjoy solid trade and investment relationships, as well. Currently, there are no restrictions for Canadian citizens who wish to transfer money from Canada to New Zealand.

Visas, work permits and residency

Canadian citizens planning to visit New Zealand for less than three months do not need a visa to do so. If planning to work in New Zealand either temporarily or permanently, a work visa is required. There are several types of work visas, including the Skilled Migrant visa and the Residence from Work visa. Both of these visas allow the holder to live and work in New Zealand for a set period of time.

Canadian citizens who wish to apply for permanent residency in New Zealand must apply for the “citizenship by grant” program, and must meet specific requirements to qualify, including planning to stay in New Zealand if granted citizenship. They also must have lived in New Zealand for at least five years with resident status before applying for permanent residency. For more information, please visit the New Zealand Government immigration website.

Buying property in New Zealand

Purchasing real estate in New Zealand is relatively straightforward and can often be accomplished in a matter of weeks. However, there are a few important things to take note of before transferring money to New Zealand for your property purchase. Working with a real estate agent is often the quickest and easiest way to find real estate in New Zealand. Choose an agent registered with the Real Estate Agents Licensing Board to ensure they are reputable and licensed. An agent will provide a list of properties to choose from and will then work with the buyer to identify an acceptable offer. In New Zealand, agents receive their commission from the seller of the property, not the buyer.

Once a property is agreed upon, the real estate agent will provide the buyer with a standard sales contract to sign. The buyer must also submit their offer formally in writing. This formal offer is conditional and is often based upon standard agreements, such as an independent property evaluation or the approval of financing for the purchase.

Taxation

Canadian residents living abroad must declare their earnings and file tax forms annually. They must pay Canadian taxes on their worldwide earned income. Currently, Canada and New Zealand have a double taxation agreement, meaning Canadian citizens will receive credit via a foreign income tax offset for any taxes paid in New Zealand. This agreement helps citizens of both countries to avoid double taxation. If you plan to transfer money from Canada to New Zealand to pay for taxes, there are no restrictions on an international funds transfer.

Voting

To vote in a Canadian Federal Election requires, you must be a Canadian citizen 18 years or older. Canadian citizens living abroad were granted voting rights in 1993, but there is a five-year time limit to these voting rights. To renew an expired voting status after five years, a citizen must return and resume residency within Canada before being permitted to vote again in Canadian Federal Elections.

Canadians studying in New Zealand

Canadian citizens planning to study full-time in New Zealand for less than three months do not require a visa. For study programs that last longer than three months, Canadian students will need to apply for a student visa. New Zealand and Canada currently have a student work agreement in place, allowing a Canadian citizen to take one or more courses at an accredited New Zealand school while also working, as long as the total duration of the courses does not exceed six months. For more information, please visit the New Zealand Government’s immigration website.

Healthcare

New Zealand has a state-run, publicly-funded healthcare system that is available to citizens and permanent residents of the country. Permanent residents are defined as an individual who owns a Returning Resident’s visa, or who holds a current Residence permit and has lived in the country for at least two years. Private health insurance is recommended for those who do not meet these requirements, as well as a supplement for those who are eligible for the state-run system. Canadian citizens who are temporarily traveling in New Zealand are strongly recommended to take out travel insurance before visiting New Zealand.

Importing from New Zealand to Canada

Canada and New Zealand are close partners in multilateral trade negotiations as well as the Cairns group of agricultural exporters. Bilateral merchandise trade accounted for just over C$900 million in 2013. New Zealand imports to Canada were worth C$513.5 million during that time, with meat products, wine, and machinery topping the list. The two countries share similar goals on a number of issues, from international trade, education and culture, to security, counter-terrorism, human rights and humanitarian policy. Both countries share a strong commitment to multilateralism and economic cooperation. Their ties are further strengthened by their participation in the Canada-Australia-New Zealand (CANZ) co-operation within the UN.
