I applied for a New Zealand Student Visa in April this year. I had to attend a Telephone Interview taken by an New Zealand immigration officer. Some days after that, I got a refusal letter.

Is it possible to get a copy/recording/transcript of the telephone interview?

Please reply asap. Thanks.

    Maybe, but they're not necessarily checking this website hourly for your convenience. Why don't you contact the authorities directly to ask? – nkjt Sep 16 '16 at 10:22

    Im not a government employee, but a gut feeling is no, you can't. You can be refused an entry into any country and i don't think that the country has got obligations to explain itself, as long as it's formally presented you with a refusal letter. You also dont mention anything about your background, nationality etc, which may have played a role. – rbm Sep 16 '16 at 19:58
  • so far I know, in case of UK visa interview (video conference), applicants are allowed to have a transcript (the interview in written form or audio/video form) upon request. – ford12 Sep 17 '16 at 6:38

As with any visa application in any country, being declined can be based on many factors. Your letter from Immigration New Zealand would advise you of the reasons, and what to do next, including any right you have to appeal, review, or access its records (e.g., of your interview).

It would also contain a copy of the immigration instructions which you may not have met. Should you still disagree, or decide it's best to remedy any shortcomings and reapply, you may wish to consult an adviser. By law, any person that gives you immigration advice about New Zealand must be licensed by the Immigration Advisers Authority.
