Concern about short-notice on a home quarantine pilot.

The self-isolation trial will be capped at 150 business travellers, on short overseas work trips.

They must return to New Zealand between October 30 and December 8.

Expressions of interest open on Thursday, with successful applicants told on October 15.

Orion Health CEO Ian McCrae has at least 20 employees he wants to send overseas.

He says that's a quick turnaround.

He says customers have to get themselves organised, and you can't decide overnight to go to a conference.
