Arno Nothnagel holds a full license from the Immigration Advisers Authority (IAA).
Arno completed his studies in New Zealand Immigration Law and Practice at Massey University in 2010. He also holds a Diploma in Sport and Recreation from Auckland University of Technology and has nearly completed his Bachelor in Commerce.
Arno specialises in Business Visa Applications and is passionate about utilising his formal background in business and economics to produce high-quality applications for his business visa clients. “I have lived in New Zealand for over ten years. In that time, I have personally witnessed the growth of many businesses here and the variety of businesses that now make up the New Zealand economy is simply amazing! As an immigration adviser, my aim is to play my part and help New Zealand further develop both economically and socially.”
Arno is the eldest son of Erica Nothnagel Willoughby, the founder and director of Silver Fern Immigration Services. He was born in South Africa and immigrated to New Zealand with his family at the age of fifteen. “I remember coming to New Zealand as a teenager – and having to adjust to the culture and the language. It was one of the most challenging periods of my life. But now, I wouldn’t live anywhere else in the world. New Zealand is now my home.”
An avid Crossfitter and all-round sport fanatic, Arno spends most of his free time playing rugby, cricket, hockey and training and competing in Crossfit and Powerlifting. Besides fitness, he also enjoys travelling around New Zealand as a 'backyard tourist' with Dominey, his wife, and having barbeques with family and friends.
