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:

Hi Neighbours, If buses are running near empty, maybe the traditional way of providing public transport needs a rethink. Read the story below on the empty buses of Hobsonville Point. What's the answer ?
