Arunima Dhingra
Licensed Immigration Adviser (#200900407)
NZAMI Awards 2017 Winner for
• Immigration Advisor or Lawyer of the Year 
• Community Outreach 

The Licensed Immigration Advisers at Aims Global Immigration & Education Services specialise in working with students to smooth their pathway to residency in New Zealand.

Aims Global Director Arunima Dhingra understands from personal experience what it is like to move to a new country, to go through the process of achieving residency, to settle into a different culture, and to work towards bringing other family members out to New Zealand. This experience has structured her approach at Aims Global. Every client has direct contact with Arunima. They all have her contact details and know she is just a text / email away should they have any problems.

This support continues long after the clients have gained residency. Despite Aims Global now having more than 5000 clients on its books, every client receives a monthly newsletter so they can be kept up to date with any changes in policy that may affect immigrants.

Arunima’s wealth of experience and vast knowledge as an immigration industry leader means her input is often sought on all aspects of immigration policy development, including submissions on pilot schemes. She works tirelessly to ensure any policy changes safeguard the needs of immigrants and students, and she actively engages with policy makers to this end.

Arunima qualified with a bachelor in engineering degree. She started practising in the education and immigration industry in 2004 and studied immigration law at Massey University. She has a graduate diploma from AUT and is a full licensed immigration adviser.

She co-founded Aims Global Education with her father in India. The company was a member of the NZ Specialist Agents Group, a group appointed by Education NZ and Immigration NZ.

Aims Global Immigration & Education Services was started by her in NZ originally as a one-man-band and has grown into a successful immigration practise consisting of 3 full licensed immigration advisers, plus administration and documentation staff.

Arunima is extremely passionate about her work and finds immense satisfaction in achieving results for her clients.

Along with being a successful entrepreneur, family is very important to Arunima and she is the mother of a two young children. In what little spare time she gets she loves to spend time with her family, travel, shop and hopefully catch up on her sleep.

She can be contacted on or her mobile 0064 212575250.
