The World No 1 tennis participant, was ready for the decision from the Australian authorities after his visa denial was cancelled by the federal courtroom on Monday, January tenth, 2022. Djokovic was denied a visa into the nation forward of the primary grand slam after failing to submit the appropriate COVID-19 vaccination or medical exemption necessities.

Australian immigration minister, Alex Hawke stated in an announcement launched on Friday, January 14th, 2022. Based on him, Djokovic’s visa was cancelled primarily based on well being and good order grounds and for the curiosity of the general public.

At present, I exercised my energy underneath part 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr Novak Djokovic on well being and good order grounds, on the idea that it was within the public curiosity to take action. The choice adopted orders by the Federal Circuit and Household Court docket on 10 January 2022, quashing a previous cancellation choice on procedural equity grounds. In making this choice, I fastidiously thought of data offered to me by the Division of House Affairs, the Australian Border and Mr Djokovic. The Morrison Authorities is firmly dedicated to defending Australia’s borders, notably in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. I believe the officers of the Division of House Affairs and the Australian Borders Pressure who work each day to serve Australia’s curiosity in more and more difficult operational setting.

Djokovic and his group wish to attraction the choice earlier than the grand slam begins at Melbourne however the main constraint is having to get a courtroom to take a seat earlier than his sport.
