You can take a break from paying your student loan for up to 12 months while you travel overseas. You need to let us know if you want a repayment holiday either:
- before you go overseas
- within 6 months of leaving.
During your repayment holiday, interest is added to your student loan but you do not need to make repayments.
You can apply for a repayment holiday in myIR or by calling us.
