Novak Djokovic, who failed to provide sufficient justification for obtaining medical exemption from vaccination at the border, may, after the cancellation of his visa, receive a three-year ban on entry to Australia. MK-Sport tells the details.
Novak Djokovic was revoked his visa to enter Australia because he failed to provide the necessary evidence of his right to a medical exemption from vaccination.
Recall that, according to the requirements of the authorities, all players arriving at the Australian series of tournaments, including the Grand Slam tournament, must be vaccinated or receive a medical withdrawal from the vaccine, studied by a two-stage commission of doctors already on the Green Continent. According to Tennis Australia, Novak received approval, and the specialists did not know whose application they were considering. But upon arrival at Melbourne airport, additional justifications were required to validate the vis
a. Neither the federal government nor the government of Victoria began to meet the best tennis player in the world. His visa was canceled and was supposed to be deported from the country, but Djokovic succeeded in obtaining an appeal. The hearing was rescheduled for Monday, January 10th.
Now Djokovic is in a hotel where migrants are usually accommodated. A real demonstration of the tennis player’s supporters has already unfolded under the windows of his room.
However, the consequences for the Serb could be much more dire. Mary Kroc, professor of public law at the University of Sydney, spoke about what can await Novak Djokovic in the event of his deportation from Australia.
“Cancellation of a visa has long-term consequences – both for Australia and the other country he will be trying to get to. Now Novak will always be asked: “Have you been expelled from another country before?” If he is deported from Australia, then there is a possibility that he will receive a three-year travel ban, “- quoted by Croc NCA Newswire.
The Australian authorities have already demonstrated their toughness and unwillingness to meet even the world’s sports stars halfway. So in this case, they can act as firmly, and Novak will not be able to play in his favorite tournament until his 37th birthday.
