Daljit Singh licence refused

Media release

3 March 2014

The Immigration Advisers Authority has refused to renew Daljit Singh’s licence to give immigration advice after he was convicted of electoral fraud.

The Authority takes dishonesty very seriously and has deemed Mr Singh unfit to hold a licence.

Notes to editor

The Immigration Advisers Authority was set up to promote and protect the interests of people receiving New Zealand immigration advice.

We do this by:

Under the Immigration Advisers Licensing Act 2007 anyone giving immigration advice must have a licence unless they are exempt. Exempt people include lawyers with a current New Zealand practising certificate and Citizens Advice Bureaux staff among others.

The Authority is independent of Immigration New Zealand and cannot give immigration advice or influence a visa application.
