Increase in MIQ costs for temporary visa holders - are you impacted?

Lucy Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours,

MBIE has just announced that from 25 March 2021, MIQ costs for temporary entry visa class holders will increase from $3100 to $5520.

Temporary visa holders (including those on visitor visas, student visas, work visas and limited visas) who have already booked MIQ spots and are due to enter on/after 25 March will also be expected to pay by the new standards.

Are you impacted by this change? What are your thoughts on this change? Feel free to get in touch with me to share your views:

Please join us at our AGM on Wednesday 14th April 2021 at Willowbank School (56 Middlefield Drive) in their staffroom at 7.30pm, if you are, or would like to be, a Howick Botany Neighbourhood Street Coordinator.

There is no pressure to fill any positions, as the current committee is happy to restand, but we are always looking for new ideas and new committee members are very welcome. We would love to see you at the meeting and have some New World vouchers, that have kindly been donated by New World Howick, to give away. Light refreshments will also be available.

Hoping to see you there.
