The Bangladesh cricket team will be able to visit New Zealand twice this year and many New Zealanders from abroad will be able to return occasionally.
Also due to the highly controversial MIQ of the Dutch cricket team which is lower than Afghanistan in the International Cricket Council (ICC) One Day (ODI) rankings.
MIQ’s other special team work has been announced, with more than 1,300 rooms reserved for international project staff in Antarctica until February, and 400 rooms for companies and artists heading to Dubai for the Expo 2020 from October.
Many New Zealanders cannot go home due to lack of MIQ rooms.
The Ministry of Commerce, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) said there were an average of 19,781 individual users a day in a week in mid-August. There are only 4,000 rooms available every two weeks or on average less than 300 rooms per day, so 65 times more people are looking for rooms than there are rooms at that time.
The committee’s allocations are determined by ministers headed by Immigration Minister Chris Fawcett. To qualify for committees, they must be funded by a government agency and decided by ministers of national interest or have “significant” economic impact. National security or international obligations are also a valid reason.
Following in the footsteps of Bangladesh – New Zealand’s third series in 12 months – South Africa and the Netherlands cricket teams will arrive in late summer. All three teams will receive 35 rooms each, which will be provided by Sport New Zealand.
The Black Caps are planning three ODIs and a T20I in Australia in February 2022. If playing and the isolated travel bubble is not strengthened, the team will need MIQ rooms when they return.
Since early 2021, the Black Caps and teams that have played or participated (twice in Australia, Bangladesh, South Africa and the Netherlands) have needed or received 272 MIQ rooms locally.
In addition to the rooms announced earlier this year, MIQ rooms have been provided to more scientists and staff in Antarctica.
From this month until February next year, 1,312 MIQ rooms have been allocated to US, Korean and European Antarctic projects. It was allocated an additional 820 from August 2020 to February and 204 in July 2021. These are issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT).
Christchurch is a gateway city and a platform for transporting people and goods to the continent.
Four hundred rooms are reserved for participants at the Dubai Expo between October 2021 and March 2022, and are sponsored by MFAT. The event is a major global exhibition to promote New Zealand’s business, tourism and business interests. New Zealand artists will attend.
Rooms have also been provided to 450 foreign fishermen over the next three months under the auspices of the Ministry of Primary Industries.
The New Zealand Security Forces had 298 rooms in October and February. It was 89 again in June and July this year.
The Crankworks Mountain Bike Festival has 70 rooms next month.
Suppliers provided by New Zealand Business and Company received 50 rooms in November and December.
From November to March, a group of sports teams visit the country:
• All Blocks (65 Cameras)
Black Fern (65 rooms)
Black Caps (77 cameras)
Bangladesh cricket team (35 rooms)
Women’s Cricket World Cup (181 rooms)
• Silver Fern (24 rooms)
South African cricket team (35 rooms)
Return from Winter Olympics (53 rooms)
Dutch cricket team (35 rooms)
Winter Paralympics (11 rooms)
Only half of the rooms in the MIQ system are used by New Zealanders, who continue to register through the Managed Separation Allocation Scheme (MIAS).
If all MIQ facilities are available, 4900 rooms will be available every two weeks, but will not be used by a total of 2400-2550 MIAS bookings:
350-500 is allocated for large groups and special allowances

Loss of 15 percent or 600 people in the group
