Mathijs - GP from the Netherlands

My name is Mathijs Roije and I am a GP from the Netherlands. I am to New Zealand in September. 

The whole process took me 7 months. The easiest part of the process was getting a job offer. The most challenging part of the process was filling in the same information on forms over and over again.

My first impressions of NZ were: very positive, first country I ever visited with a friendly immigrations officer, this is the standard for kiwis, all very friendly and helpful.

What I miss the most is family. 

My advice if you are planning to come to NZ is don't hesitate,  just do it, 

Please note - don't underestimate your jetleg combined with a jetlagged family.

At work, it has been a challenge with the paper work -  I was not used to the off work certificates and WINZ, still adjusting to it. The good thing is the people with their problems/issues are universal In General Practice, I like it that the work-up before you refer is done by the GP's this is less in NL.



How do I get registered in New Zealand? How much will I get paid in New Zealand? Where is the best place to work in New Zealand? Do my children need visas for New Zealand? For answers to these questions and more, check out our FAQs page.
