Australia has long been popular with British people looking to relocate abroad, due to its similarities with the UK in terms of language and culture.
It is for the same reasons that expatriates have often chosen neighbouring New Zealand for a new life in the sunshine.
But it looks like the latter destination is set to become all the more popular as a result of its flourishing economy.
New Zealand has been placed at number five on the Legatum Prosperity Index of 142 countries, highlighting its strength in eight categories, including health, education, safety and security, and economy.
This favourable position only looks set to get even better as financial experts predict it will see more growth in the coming year than many of the world's leading economies, reports A Place in the Sun.
Not only are Brits looking to New Zealand to get a slice of these circumstances, but the Antipodean nation has skilled expats in its sights too.
The economic boom has led to a skills shortage in a number of key areas ranging from retail to construction, meaning there are definitely ways in for those who wish to move abroad and work.
Paul Arthur, director of migration specialists The Emigration Group told the news provider: "There has never been a better time to emigrate to New Zealand. With the country’s strongly performing economy, Brits will find it much easier to find job opportunities and qualify for a visa to live and work down under.
"Not only are there more career opportunities in New Zealand but the salaries they offer are often higher than in the UK, not to mention the considerably better weather and lifestyle!"
The average growth for advanced economies for 2013 is 1.2 per cent and according to International Monetary Fund's annual World Economic Outlook New Zealand's will be more like 2.5 per cent.
This puts it behind Israel, Singapore, Hong Kong and Korea in the list of 35 advanced economies across the world.
