In managed isolation or quarantine already?

If you are currently in a managed isolation or quarantine facility and your expectations are not being met, you should first raise your concerns with the Facility Manager or Wellbeing Coordinator at your facility.

There are a range of specialist staff onsite who are able to deal with issues including security, police, health and wellbeing and welfare support. You should contact the onsite staff first to help you with your concerns.

If you need language assistance, your Facility Manager or Wellbeing Coordinator can arrange an interpreter for you.

If your concern isn’t resolved, or you are not currently in a managed isolation or quarantine facility, you can raise your issue by using the Complaints Form below.

Our enquiry, feedback and complaint form

MIQ is a group within the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE). We may need to share the details of your complaint with other government agencies involved in managing our facilities to get it resolved. Do you consent for MBIE to do this?


This may mean we are not able to resolve your complaint. If it becomes apparent this consent is necessary to further the investigation, we may ask again for your consent.

Your privacy is important to us

By submitting this form, we will collect personal information from you including your name, contact details and information you give us about your complaint. Besides our staff, we may share this information with other organisations involved in managed isolation and quarantine facilities to answer your enquiry or resolve your complaint, unless you expressly tell us not to do so.

Calls to our Contact Centre and to the Telephone Interpreting Service are recorded for quality and training purposes.

You have the right to ask for a copy of any personal information we hold about you, and to ask for it to be corrected if you think it is wrong. You can do that by using the above form.
