Several wealthy investors are interested in buying golden passports to New Zealand.

High uncertainty in the current climate has driven investor interest in gaining New Zealand citizenship as a plan b option. 

Golden passports or Visas are a way for the wealthy to receive citizenship or residency in another country in exchange for investing millions of dollars. 

Henley and Partners, a firm that helps investors buy residency and citizenship globally, says there has been a significant increase in interest in the New Zealand programme.

The company website says New Zealand offers an attractive destination for investment and business and is one of the most "stable and well-governed nations."
