Candidates are needed to contribute essentially NZ$10m ($7m, £5m) in New Zealand more than three years.
Mr Page entered New Zealand in January, when its lines were as yet shut in view of Covid-19.

He isn’t the main Silicon Valley tech very rich person to have taken a specific premium in New Zealand.
