Australian gov’t cancels Novak Djokovic’s visa for second time | Sports News


Australian gov’t cancels Djokovic’s visa for a second time, saying the unvaccinated tennis player may pose a risk to the community.

Tennis star Novak Djokovic faces deportation after Australian government revokes his visa for a second time.

The Australian government cancelled his visa on Friday, saying the world’s top-ranked men’s tennis player, unvaccinated for COVID-19, may pose a risk to the community.

Immigration Minister Alex Hawke used discretionary powers to again cancel Djokovic’s visa, after a court quashed an earlier revocation and released him from immigration detention on Monday.

“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,” Hawke said in a statement.
