However, the town on Saturday denied a spate of reports suggesting Kaitangata would offer sizable incentive packages to fill open jobs. The San Francisco Gate reported that Mayor Bryan Cadogan and the town's professionals collaborated to come up with a package worth NZ$230,000 (more than $160,000) for job seekers to relocate.
"There is currently a story that has been published by overseas media that we are paying people $160,000 to move to Kaitangata and people should ring the Mayor about it. This is NOT TRUE," a statement on the town's website read.
"People are not being paid to move to Kaitangata and you should not contact the Mayor about it," the statement on Saturday read.
This is unlikely to be a problem for educated and qualified South Africans wanting to immigrate to New Zealand. Serious migrants plan for their own moving expenses and are unlikely to be deterred by the lack of such an incentive. What’s more important to South Africans is living a safer better quality life with the security of knowing your job is secure.
Exactly what Kaitangata offers!
And its good news all around Kaitangata’s mayor confirmed that the town offers ample and relatively cheap housing. He also suggested interested applicants comply with New Zealand's applicable immigration laws, and check in with the town's economic agency for job openings.
"If you do meet the (immigration) criteria and you'd like to know more about the affordable House and Land packages ON SALE in Kaitangata, you need to visit" the city's website to check out the openings, the statement added.
