Who needs to pay for managed isolation


$3,100 for the first or only person in the room (whether that is an adult or a child) plus $950 for each additional adult and $475 for each additional child (3-17 years old, inclusive) sharing that room, all GST inclusive. There will be no charge for children under the age of 3.

If you are liable to pay, you will be charged per room.

What does your charge cover

The average weighted cost of a single occupant staying in managed isolation is about $5,520 (incl GST). This includes:

  • accommodation
  • food
  • transport and operational and support costs.

Costs incurred by other agencies, such as Aviation Security, Ministry of Health, the New Zealand Defence Force, and New Zealand Police, are not included in this cost.
