If the university is not a qualified education institution you can’t receive education credit. The school should be able to tell you if it qualifies. Or you can check here.

Thanks for your response. The school Massey University in New Zealand is qualified for getting financial aid through FAFSA. But they told that they don't have a U.S. federal ID.

 

So, my question is if there is a way to enter educational expenses and get deduction or credit based on the money transfer documation that I have with me.

I checked the irs database and your school is an eligible education institution. 

When you get to the 1098-T entry, you can say that you don't have a 1098-T and there is an exception. The program will then let you enter the expenses without the form. And, you will not need an EIN.
