Can a Permanent Resident be Deported from Australia?
The answer is yes, under the Migration Act 1958.
This Act states that any non-citizen who comes to Australia and overstays their visa or chooses to engage in criminal activity will be liable for detention and removal from Australia.
In the last 7 years more than 2,300 people have been deported under section 501 of the Act.
In 2020 there were 346 New Zealanders who were removed from Australia under that Act. Many of whom did not realise that they could be deported after comitting a crime.
Section 501: Refusal or cancellation of visa on character grounds.
Migration Act 1958. Sect 501
