What is The Kiwi Kit?

The Kiwi Kit is an all-in-one relocation guide for anyone interested in moving to beautiful New Zealand.


Founded on a love for Aotearoa (Māori for The Land of the Long White Cloud) and everything the country represents, The Kiwi Kit is a unique service that helps you from the moment you decide to leave home until you’re well settled in New Zealand.


Our founder, Kelsey Powell, knew that if she could fall in love with a country, the people, and the way of life as deeply as she has with New Zealand, other people out there must be looking for that same connection.


Moving to New Zealand was confusing and a little daunting, but now that Kelsey and her team understand exactly what would have helped them simplify the process and feel supported along the way, they have created it to help someone like you!


Born out of a need to help others with their move to New Zealand, The Kiwi Kit has become not only a guide for those seeking to relocate, but also a community of individuals going through the same experience.


The Kiwi Kit’s Mission:


To be the best relocation program available for those seeking to move to New Zealand.

To foster an authentic, caring community of expats and Kiwis.

To highlight and celebrate the unique and special aspects of what living in New Zealand truly means.


The Kiwi Kit Team has a passion for sharing the spirit of New Zealand and want to help anyone seeking to start a fresh chapter full of adventure, excitement, new friends, and new experiences.


We’re working hard to ensure that you can have a smooth transition and full support along the way the moment you decide to move to stunning Aotearoa.
