Changes to the myIR login screen are coming You will not be able to use myIR between 1pm Saturday 8 October and 8am Monday 10 October. This is so we can update our external authentication system. From Monday 10 October the myIR login page will have a new look and feel, but the login process will not change.

Moving overseas

If you're outside of New Zealand for around 5 out of 6 months, you might become overseas-based. If you're overseas-based:

  • interest will be applied to your student loan from the day after you left New Zealand
  • your loan repayments will be based on the size of your loan balance at the start of the New Zealand tax year (1 April). 

Returning to New Zealand

If you return to New Zealand and stay for around 5 out of 6 months, you might become New Zealand-based. If you're New Zealand-based, your student loan:

  • is interest-free from the date you returned to New Zealand
  • repayments are based on how much you earn.
