Immigration Policy - New Conservative NZ

Immigration Policy

Immigration is central to many parts of New Zealand’s culture, economy, and future prospects.

New Conservative believes that there is a balance to be struck between the important benefits that immigration brings and the wellbeing of those who already call New Zealand home.

New Conservative believes that those who choose to immigrate should embrace New Zealand’s culture and work hard to assimilate into their new communities.

New Zealand should welcome those who can invest in us and stay here long-term, so that we can integrate them fully into our communities. New Zealand’s reliance on temporary work visas is bad for productivity, local business, and community building. Reducing our reliance on those visas will take the pressure off our housing market, provide long-term economic investment in stable local workforces, and lead to higher productivity and thus higher wages.

New Conservative will work with NZ-based NGOs operating in troubled zones to identify refugees who are more closely aligned with our nation’s values, and fill our refugee quota with these people, rather than accepting the United Nations allotment.
