Tourists served deportation notices by Immigration New Zealand after incident at Hamilton Burger King

The tourists who have been causing a stir around Auckland after allegedly abusing locals when confronted for littering Takapuna Beach and allegedly making trouble at multiple restaurants have been served a deportation notice by Immigration New Zealand.

The news comes after Stuff reported that police received reports of "the family causing trouble" at Burger King in Hamilton, this afternoon.

The family was filmed by 1 NEWS outside a Te Rapa, Hamilton Burger King today where they were being spoken to by police and Immigration.

A spokesperson for Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has now confirmed to 1 NEWS that the family was issued with a deportation notice over the Burger King incident.

"INZ can confirm that Deportation Liability Notices (DLN) were served on individuals involved in the incident at Burger King in Hamilton today. 

"Section 157(5) of the Immigration Act 2009 provides for temporary visa holders to be issued with a DLN on a number of grounds, including matters relating to character," Peter Devoy, Assistant General Manager of INZ says.

The notices mean the family have 28 days to appeal their deportation.

One of the family members told 1 NEWS reporter Paul Hobbs the family plan on leaving the country tomorrow.

Earlier, the family denied any wrongdoing, saying they are the ones who have been poorly treated during their trip to New Zealand.
