Hopes the hotel industry can shake the MIQ stigma.  

From Thursday, vaccinated New Zealanders in Australia will be able to return home without isolating.  

Kiwis from the rest of the world can come from Saturday under the same rules.  

Sudima Hotels Chief Operating Officer Les Morgan told Mike Hosking while demand will be slow to return, hotels are raring to go. 

“Hotels will be safe to occupy, they’ve got high hygiene standards, they’ve got great staff. There will be no overhang from a health perspective.”
