A Wellington company accused of exploiting desperate Kiwis trying to return home from overseas has dramatically increased its fees.

MIQ Helpers is being accused of cashing in on people’s desperation.

MIQ Helpers yesterday charged $1200 to help New Zealanders find spots in managed isolation facilities, but their prices were doubled today.

Lower Hutt businessman Aaron Athfield, who runs the website, would not come to the door or answer questions from 1 NEWS today.

MBIE said yesterday it’s a returnee’s choice if they want to use a third party to help them book.
