Australia to deport tennis star Djokovic after revoking his visa once again - TASS

Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke has decided that Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic’s visa should be revoked once again, according to the minister’s statement published on Friday.

Based on the immigration chief’s decision, Djokovic’s visa has once again been revoked so the tennis star will have to soon leave the country. In addition, Djokovic will face a three-year entry ban.

"Today, I exercised my power under section 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr. Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so," the statement reads. "In making this decision, I carefully considered information provided to me by the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border Force, and Mr. Djokovic," Hawke added.

According to him, the "Morrison Government is firmly committed to protecting Australia’s borders, particularly in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic."

  1. An Australian court has ordered the detention of tennis star Novak Djokovic after authorities revoked his tourist visa for a second time in a row over his vaccination status. Media reports say the athlete will attend an interview with Australian immigration officials on Saturday morning after which he will be arrested and sent to an immigration detention facility used for refugees.
    The Serbian athlete initially faced deportation, but local authorities agreed to postpone it. The 34-year-old also faces a three-year ban on obtaining a new visa.
    His lawyers said they would lodge an appeal at a late-night court hearing and described the decision to revoke the athlete's visa as "patently irrational". They also voiced concerns about Djokovic's safety if the location of his detention facility becomes known to the public.
