Problems with immigrating
We have interviewed a large number of immigrants, and it is thanks to them that we can publish this information. What problems do immigrants encounter? Racism, if youíre a different colour or you speak a different language. Learning a new language. Finding somewhere to live, or to find a job if you are a refugee, is almost impossible. Understanding peopleís deception that there was no racial discrimination in this country. Some immigrants canít find a job here, although they are highly qualified. Some get cheated out of jobs, while some are simply not accepted because they come from a different country. One of the biggest problems for immigrants is to get a professional qualification accepted. They have to resit basic exams etc.
The New Zealand points assessment system. The current pass mark is 25 points. You lose points as you get older or if you have less money. For a highly qualified person, this can be very frustrating if you donít get to 25 points. Getting points is not equal to getting jobs. Filling in immigration forms. If you even make a small mistake in these forms, you may not be accepted to live in New Zealand.
