The face of New Zealand is constantly changing as new families arrive on our shores.

Migration has hit a record high, but what is the experience of arriving and setting up life in New Zealand really like?

In the 12 months to February 29, 2016, figures from Statistics New Zealand show that long term arrivals exceeded departures by 67,391 - the highest level on record.

We'd love to hear from immigrant families and individuals who have made New Zealand their home. Why did you move here? Was it easy to adjust to the Kiwi way of life, or did the culture come as a bit of a shock?

Have you been able to access the services, education, and employment that you need?

Have you made friends or do you find yourself up against racism and discrimination?

Is life in New Zealand what you thought it would be?
