The stay of the Google co-founder in New Zealand is controversial

Millionaire Larry Page was able to cross the border despite restrictions imposed by the health situation.

New Zealand, despite the border being closed due to Govt-19, is accessible to some – especially if they are rich, sad sad spirits. Larry Page, one of Google’s co-founders, was able to enter the area to receive treatment for his son from Fiji, despite measures to prevent infection.

If the facts go back to the beginning of the year, the leaked information is currently causing an outcry, especially from the opposition, which demanded clarifications. “Why was Larry Page (…) allowed to enter New Zealand when frustrated and separated families in New Zealand could not cross the border?”, David Seymour, leader of the opposition Liberal ACT party, responded. The immigration minister said the millionaire had sought exemption for medical reasons. In November 2020, the historical founder of the Internet company applied to live in this country, which for many years tried to attract investors with a program like “Golden Visa” of Portugal or Cyprus. Page’s request was processed after arriving in Auckland on January 12, 2021. The following month he was granted an “investor plus” residence visa. To get this sesame, any applicant must have NZ $ 10 million ($ 7 million) to invest in the country within three years. According to the New Zealand newspaper, the Page family left the area after benefiting from this entry, which was selected among the Kiwis.
