People-trafficking is not the same as people smuggling

There are some key differences between people trafficking and people smuggling

What is Human Trafficking?

Most trafficked persons consent to the initial movement, and are often lured with false offers of employment. It is often not until they arrive in New Zealand that it becomes clear they were deceived and are exploited. Victims do not always fit stereotypes of forced movement and confinement. Most victims are given certain degrees of freedom. Control is typically achieved through debt bondage, isolation, fear, and/or threats around immigration status.
