Novak Djokovic’s visa cancellation been confirmed on 16 Jan 2022.
The three judges hearing Novak Djokovic’s second visa appeal have unanimously confirmed the Australian Immigration departments decision to cancel his visa. He will now be deported from Australia, as no further appeal is permitted.
The information below was dated 14 January 2022.
Novak Djokovic’s visa has been cancelled again on 14 Jan 2022.
Following the Federal Circuit and Family Court hearing on 10 January 2022, which reversed the original decision to cancel Novak Djokovic’s visa on a technical issue, the Immigration minister has now revoked Novak Djokovic’s visa after carefully considering information provided by the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border Force and Mr Djokovic.
Some of the reasons included Australians have made many sacrifices during this pandemic, and they rightly expect the result of those sacrifices to be protected.
This would probably include referring to the many sacrifices made by the Australian people to ensure they were vaccinated before being allowed to do many things.
It would seem wrong to many people to just allow famous people to hold themselves above the law.
Novak Djokovic may also be facing consequences in both Spain and Serbia on his return.
Two UK newspapers reports are:
Revelations concerning his positive Covid test last month have led Spain’s lawmakers to dig deeper into whether Djokovic broke their travel regulations while visiting Marbella, the Daily Mail reported.
If Djokovic was found to have breached Serbia’s isolation rules, Ms Brnabic said she would have to consult with “relevant authorities, and the medical people who are in charge of implementing these regulations”.
What caused this fiasco?
Tennis Australia gave Djokovic an exemption to play tennis.
Djokovic obtained a visa based on having a medical exemption.
Australian Border Force did not recognise that exemption for immigration purposes, and refused his visa. Unfortunately they did not follow proper procedure.
A court over-ruled Border Force, over that technicality, and ordered his visa reinstated.
The Immigration minister spent a few days, presumably to ensure no more legal technicalities, and revoked his visa again on 14 Jan 2022.
Thank you to those who have sent me a coffee, it is very much appreciated.
