hello, well let me just start off and say I'm 18 years of age and I am an American citizen. However for as long as I could remember I've always sought to live a life in another country. I've thought about moving to England, but I've heard that they're getting jammed packed and the emigration laws are starting to become stricter, so now I'm currently looking at New Zealand. So to sum it all up here are my questions: Should I wait til after i graduate from college to leave to the New Zealand (are American degrees transferable or do you start from scratch in regards to schooling)? How do I become a citizen of the New Zealand? how do i meet the prerequisites for New Zealand citizenship (in regards to residency and permanent residency)? is there anything else i need, or would be helpful to know?
