From Morning Report, 7:14 am on 7 July 2020

A Kiwi motor racing champion is struggling to understand why his wife is repeatedly being denied permission to enter the country.

Rod Millen and his American wife, Shelly Campbell, run a succesful motorcross festival in Northland.

Four applications to get his wife of 13 years into the country have been denied by Immigration New Zealand without explanation. This is contrary to assurances made by the Prime Minister when the border closed in March.

Millen is currently living at his farm on the Coromandel Peninsula while his wife is stuck in Nevada.

He speaks to Corin Dann.
