In the last couple of decades, Indian migrants have been predominantly skilled workers involved in professional as well as managerial positions in the country.
Today Indian-origin residents of New Zealand number more than one million and make up almost two percent of the total population of the country.
Almost two-thirds of Indians and Indian-origin Kiwis live in Auckland which is the country’s most ethnically diverse city.
Wellington is the second most preferred residential city with around 14 percent of the Indian community living here.
Moreover there are a large number of websites focusing on Indian life in New Zealand like nzindia.com, nz and nz.
All these sites have their own personal and social networking sections where young members can get to know more about each other.
The campus therefore is not as popular a venue for social interaction among young Indian immigrants as in other countries like USA, UK and Australia.
