Australian Open 2022: Novak Djokovic’s Visa Canceled for 2nd Time

Novak Djokovic’s visa has been revoked for the second time, only three days before the Australian Open in 2022. The judgment was made on Friday, and as a result, the tournament’s No. 1 seed in the men’s bracket is once again risking deportation.

Due to “public interest,” Immigration Minister Alex Hawke used “ministerial discretion” to reject the tennis star’s visa on Friday. Djokovic’s lawyers filed a new appeal shortly after Hawke’s decision, attempting to get Djokovic’s visa cancellation overturned, and had an after-hours hearing in Federal Circuit and Family Court.

At the hearing, Judge Anthony Kelly, who had previously determined that Djokovic could remain in Australia despite being unvaccinated against COVID-19, was present. The event administrators had granted Djokovic an exemption.

Lawyer of Novak Djokovic — Nick Wood told Kelly that he thought an appeal would be heard on Sunday, meaning Djokovic’s visa would be renewed and he would be able to compete in the Australian Open, which starts on Monday.

A government person providing a citizen a visa occurs “extremely rarely” in Australia, according to the Associated Press.

When Djokovic meets with Australian Border Force authorities on Saturday morning, he will have to return to immigration detention. If Djokovic is deported, he might be barred from entering Australia for three years.

At the Australian Open, he hopes to challenge for the record for most men’s Grand Slam titles. With 20 Grand Slam victories, the 34-year-old star is tied with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Djokovic would become the first man to win 21 majors.
