I have a visitor from overseas who bought some fair bit of NZ products worth around $1,000.00. Can he get a GST refund when he leaves NZ next week? If yes, how?

Visitors to New Zealand must pay GST on all goods and services that they buy in New Zealand. There is no refund of GST available when you leave New Zealand.

The only exception is that some retailers are able to sell products to tourists GST-free, so long as the items are posted overseas at the time of purchase. For your friend it'll be too late.
