    As we were unable to stay due to my partner not having his passport although he is an indigenous australian and doesn't have one or need to have one in his own country. Being kiwi I had mine but apparantly this was not sufficient for you. Neither was the fact that we had both stayed several times before your passport rule came into place. What a disgusting way to treat locals I will be spreading the word throughout friends, social media and trip advisor . Get your act together.
