Aloha is a Hawaiian word that can mean hello or goodbye, two words that have profound significance to the immigrant experience. Aloha can also mean kindness and compassion.
It is with a welcoming spirit, coupled with compassion and kindness, that Aloha Immigration was born.

Aloha Immigration & Worldwide Migration Partners
As of October 2022, Worldwide Migration Partners and Aloha Immigration announced their new partnership. Lead by Melissa Vincenty, our new team of professionals in Australia and the U.S. are pleased to offer a wide-range of visa services.
Our attorneys have over 80 years of combined experience in U.S. immigration from USCIS, ICE, and State Department.
Honolulu immigration attorney Clare Hanusz and founder of Aloha Immigration, passed away in February 2023. Melissa and Clare’s friendship began back in law school, meeting each other at the beginning of their studies at the William S. Richardson School of Law in Honolulu, Hawaii. Being both Ohio born and having an uncannily similar taste in music and humour, they knew that it was a serendipitous meeting. Through many Taco Bell lunches and late night studies sessions in the library, they supported and cheered each other on. Over the years they shared office space and jointly worked with victims on one of the largest labor trafficking cases ever brought to trial. After graduating from law school in 1999, and starting their careers in Hawaii, Melissa eventually started Worldwide Migration Partners in Sydney Australia, in 2015, and Clare founded Aloha Immigration in Honolulu, Hawaii in 2017.
Melissa is honoured to lead Clare's team along with Worldwide Migration Partners. The combined team of dedicated professionals across the world will be a powerful resource for all clients!
An endowed scholarship in Clare’s honor has been established at UH-Manoa’s William S. Richardson School of Law. The scholarship will benefit students planning to pursue a career in immigration law. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation in Clare’s memory.
