Government moves to recover some isolation fees

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:17 pm on 29 July 2020

The government has announced it will charge some arrivals for the time they spend in isolation.

The Covid-19 Public Health Response Amendment Bill will mean only New Zealanders who enter temporarily, or who leave the country after the regulations come into force, will face charges.

The cost of managed isolation and quarantine at the New Zealand borders is expected to reach about $500 million by the end of the year.

Jesse speaks to Kiwi expat - actress, writer, director - Kimberley Crossman.
