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:

Covid 19 Update: Auckland to move to alert level 2 on Sunday

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hi Auckland neighbours,

Auckland is dropping back to alert level 2 at 6am on Sunday.

This follows no new community cases in the region for five days in a row.

The rest of the country will move to level 1 on Sunday morning.

Cabinet will review this decision at the end of next week with a view to possibly moving Auckland to alert level 1.
