As a 90-year-old, I have travelled many years since I was 18 years of age; to America, the UK and Europe on a ‘visa’, ever recognised as a ‘valid entry’ to countries being visited.

Currently, it seems Djokovic was provided a ‘visa’ valid for entry to Australia.

Surely, it seems the federal government has neglected ensuring key visa-issuers have been informed or updated on any current changes to Australia’s regulations?

Under such circumstances, it surely cannot be the ‘fault’ of a visa recipient who has to bear the brunt of deportation when the government has been deficient in vital informative contact with all concerned.

  1. The media and the Government seemed to overlook the fact that he had a valid visa! All political and all done for show. Those that live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones!

  2. They shouldn’t throw trees either. As for the visa. . . naturally our visiting
    ‘star’ was fully aware of what he was up to. A try-on that backfired. As for
    our PM’s prattle, he’s on a mission to win elections. He’s gotta look tough.
