How much money should single guy on JSV bring to NZ?? Considering that I don’t have job and coming to Auckland or Wellington
You can bring upto a maximum of NZD $10K in cash with you. Anything you bring needs to be declared on arrival.
I would recommend bringing the maximum possible value as it might help in future unforeseen circumstances and give you peach of mind.
For a city like Auckland, a single guy needs atleast $1500 per month to sustain life. The breakup of the expense is as follows:
rent $220 per week
grocery $100 per week
commute $50 per week
misc $30 per week
