Plans are underway for an information hub in Auckland to help immigrants stranded or jobless because of Covid-19.

A Queenstown centre set up in June to offer immigration and welfare support was inundated with requests for help.

The Association for Migration and Investment says foreign workers and their families are struggling to access information and some have no income.

Its chair, June Ranson, told RNZ immigration reporter Gill Bonnett some overseas workers are suicidal and need advice on their visa options.
