Very soon managed isolation costs will have to be covered by people returning to New Zealand.
Proposed charges for managed isolation
Charging will start soon after the regulations come into force, which is expected to be in August. MBIE will publicise the start date as soon as it is confirmed.
The proposed charges are: $3,100 for the first person in the room with $950 for each additional adult and $475 for each additional child (3-17 years old, inclusive) sharing that room. There will be no charge for children under the age of 3. These charges are GST inclusive.
