Hi, I am a Pakistani with family looking to migrate to Auckland. Wanting to ask how is the local community in accepting new arrivals, especially Muslims. Or do we need to live in a community that is more attuned to our culture. We do not want to be seen as isolated or separate from our neighbours.

Hi Manzoor, 

New Zealand is a multicultural country with a thriving expat community across its major cities, including Auckland. Although we cannot guarantee you and your family won't experience any hiccups on your journey integrating into the community, the locals are generally accepting of expats. 

Perhaps you can have a look at these two pages, Moving to Auckland and Culture shock in New Zealand, these will give you an overview of what it might be like to live in Auckland. 

Best of luck with your move.
