Stranded Kiwis are upset by the halt in MIQ bookings.

The booking system has been paused due to the latest Covid-19 outbreak.

Ashwin Naidu runs a travel bubble group on Facebook to help get Kiwis home.

He says the pause in MIQ bookings and the cancellation of vouchers is devastating. He describes it as being "abandoned by your own government" if you're overseas.
