- Djokovic’s visa was canceled when he arrived in Melbourne last week
- Although his visa was reinstated after winning the legal battle
- Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce said that Djokovic violated the country’s strict Corona Quarantine rules
Novak Djokovic has admitted that his Australia travel detail sheet contained false information. Meanwhile, the Australian government will take a decision on whether to expel the Serbian tennis star on public interest grounds for not being vaccinated against Corona. Djokovic’s visa was revoked upon arrival in Melbourne last week because he did not meet the criteria required for medical exemption in the Corona Vaccination Rules.
However, his visa was reinstated after winning the legal battle. Despite this, he can be expelled again for security and health reasons provided Australia’s Immigration Minister Alex Hawke exercises his privileges.
Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce said that Djokovic violated the country’s strict Corona Quarantine rules. He told Nine Network TV, “Most of us feel that since Djokovic has not had both the corona vaccines, he should be excluded. This is our view but not the court’s.
Djokovic said in a travel statement form that he had not traveled for 14 days before arriving in Australia, while he was seen in Spain and Serbia.
