We are New Zealand citizens who live outside of the country. We may need to travel to NZ next year for 3+ months (but not permanently), and are currently looking at our quarantine/isolation requirements. I had heard that there are (or may be) charges related to the quarantine, but on the NZ Immigration website it only seems to mention charges for critical workers.
New charges for critical workers will come into effect on 1 January 2021.
This web page also mentions fees, but these appear to be application fees, rather than payment for the quarantine arrangement.
From 10 August 2020, most applicants are charged a fee to apply
I'm fairly sure there are potentially charges for travelers that don't fit into the "critical workers" category. What charges are there, and is it different for different ages (we're a family of 6 - 2 parents, 3 teens, 1 child)? Is there any way to reduce or avoid these charges (self-isolation I think is not an option, but perhaps there are other options)?
