Hi there,

You should be fine going back and forth between NZ and Australia with a student loan, as long as you continue to make the minimum repayments (and/or apply for the student loan repayment holiday for 3-years). We both have student loans and haven't had any issues going back and forth. We do make our repayments yearly as required though!

You will be fine leaving to australia however if you dont pay regular payments towards your student loan in nz whiles in australia you will be arrested at the nz boarder be warned. Even $20 a week should do the trick!!!
