New Zealand is making it incredibly easy to move abroad, free flight provided. 

The city of Wellington is looking to fill 100 open tech jobs, and it’s offering to fly worthy candidates down for a look, a hangout and rounds of job interviews that could lead to a full-time gig. 

The program is called LookSee Wellington. Interested travelers are required to fill out an online job application, after which local tech companies will consider them for an interview. (Yes, we’re assuming a tech background will help.) If chosen, prospects will receive free flights and accommodations for a four-day stay in the land of beaches and beer bars.

The lucky 100 candidates offered positions will have the option to move to “Silicon Welly” shortly thereafter and start their new jobs.

New Zealand consistently ranks as one of the top places to live abroad, thanks in part to its plethora of outdoor activities. Not feeling tech-y enough for this particular opportunity? Find a cheap flight on your own, and get down there!
