The ACT Party have revealed their ideas for private MIQ, which would allow mothballed hotels to privately offer their services for vaccinated travellers.

Leader David Seymour says the facilities would be run under strict testing and vaccine protocols - and help re-open the gates for international students, workers, and split migrant families.

ACT is also calling for more certainty in the immigration system.

The party has proposed dumping Labour's immigration reset, unfreezing the expression of interest queue, and resuming pre-Covid immigration settings.
