New Zealand is a state that has been attracting thousands of migrants over the centuries. Since then, the New Zealand immigration policies have been fundamental towards the growth of New Zealand particularly in the economy. Concurrently, similar to other states the Indian migrants have been migrating to New Zealand since the early days and contributing their knowledge as well as skills towards New Zealand‘s economy. Therefore, today,New Zealand is the home for many successful Indians who have been migrating primarily from India. As a 120 result, due to these high influx of migrants,the immigration policies in New Zealand over the years have been subjected for many changes. Some of these changes can be seen as opportunities and some can be considered as challenges for the future Indian migrants. Thus, this paper explains the evolution on the New Zealand immigration policies since its early days.
