Previous charging rates

In this section you will find the relevant charges for a 14-day period of isolation. This only applies to people who stayed in MIQ for 14 days, or those who entered before 14 November 2021.

Note: People who entered into MIQ shortly before the change were not kept for the full 14 days and were pro-rated to the length of time they stayed in MIQ. This applies to both sets of returnees.

For example if you arrived on 4 November 2021, you would have been released on 14 November 2021 and charged for 10 days rather than 14, pro-rated to the daily rate at the time.

Each adult in the room who was considered the “first adult in the room, will pay the highest charge. For example, If you had 2 adults and children, who are all New Zealand citizens and in 2 rooms, the charges are:

2 adults, 4 children in a family travel group (2 rooms)

Room 1
