Good day everyone.
We're a family of 3 (Self, wife and a 5 year old kid). Moving to Palmerston North in September 2016. We have been in Oman for the last 10 years (Pakistani by nationality) and first time relocating to a country far from Asia.
My wife is pursuing the Phd from Massey University. I have received my work visa and my son's being issued with a student visa. Following are the queries.
1- Minimum Cost of Living for a family like mine.
2- What is the job condition there. I am an Engineer, specialization in Project Management, contracting, planning and non technical Project controls. Is it possible to acquire a suitable job there.
3- Mode of transportation. We're thinking of using public transportation (Or bicycles as initiators).
4- Most important - Recommendations on a good school for my child
5- How is the social environment (in general). I have seen extremely nice reviews on the same throughout the different communities. Would appreciate if someone shed a light on it.
6- Anything else that is missed above.
I would highly appreciate if someone from Palmerston North and near around could advise accordingly.
