Auckland’s latest claim to shame

6 1 0

Kiwis heading off on their OE know that settling into Dubai is expensive – in fact it's the most expensive place in the world.

But the second most expensive around the globe is Auckland, which should guarantee more sneers from the bumptious tiny capital at the other end of the North Island.

The proof comes from the 2018 First Month Relocation Costs Index, which reveals the initial costs involved with relocating to some of the most in-demand cities around the world.

Furnished apartment search engine Nestpick has studied the first-month living costs involved with relocating to 80 cities around the globe.

Auckland rates as No 2 overall with the first-month living cost amounting to $5712.50 but it has the highest visa fees at $3083.09 compared with the lowest – Hong Kong at $34.71.
