The government won't detain you in Customs for what is a private loan with a bank. It is up to the bank to chase you for the money, but they don't have any power to get you detained at Customs when you are crossing in and out of New Zealand.

Hi just just wondering if you got stopped when leaving NZ to come back to Australia, as I am in the same position as you. I want to go back home but have a 4grand bank loan and don't want to get stopped at customs

If I owe money to the IRD and Baycorp, would this prevent me from leaving New Zealand?

hi apparently the courts filed a judgement summary in NZ against us, although the plaintiff has not forwarded it to us. Can we still travel in and out of Australia to visit family in NZ?
