Returning Kiwis want isolation costs subsidised

Concerns are growing among the "team of six million" that New Zealand citizens living overseas are asking for costs to be subsidised so they can return to their homeland.

Although the government decided to waive the $3,000 fee for permanent returnees to return home, its decision is still being questioned. 

The "team of six million" was formed by a group overseas arguing there were a million Kiwis abroad who had been affected.
