Kiwis overseas demand detail on managed isolation fees

From Morning Report, 6:36 am on 30 July 2020

New Zealanders living overseas are demanding more details on the government's plan to charge for managed isolation.

The fees will be limited to those entering the country temporarily, or who had left the country after the new regulation came into force.

There will be exemptions to the $3100 fee - and people returning home permanently won't have to pay.
