[IN CONFIDENCE RELEASE EXTERNAL]
6 September 2022
[FYI request #20356 email]
Dear Robert McKenzie
Thank you for your request made under the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA), received
on 26 August 2022. You requested the following:
How many student loan debtors have been arrested at the boarder between 2021
Information publicly available
The information you requested has been provided in a previous OIA response, which is
publicly available on the Inland Revenue website: Data on overseas-based student loan
Your request for this information is therefore refused under section 18(d) of
the OIA, as the information requested is publicly available.
Right of review
If you disagree with my decision on your OIA request, you can ask an Inland Revenue
review officer to review my decision. To ask for an internal review, please email the
Commissioner of Inland Revenue at: [email address].
Alternatively, under section 28(3) of the OIA, you have the right to ask the Ombudsman
to investigate and review my decision. You can contact the office of the Ombudsman by
email at: [email address].
If you choose to have an internal review, you can still ask the Ombudsman for a review.
Publishing of OIA response
Please note that Inland Revenue regularly publishes responses to requests that may be of
interest to the wider public on its website. We consider this response is of public interest
so will publish this response in due course. Your personal details or any information that
would identify you will be removed prior to it being published.
Thank you for your request.
