  Novak Djokovic denied entry to Australia, has visa canceled BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — Novak Djokovic’s chance to play for a 10th Australian Open title was thrown into limbo Thursday when the country denied him entry and canceled his visa because he failed to meet the requirements for an exemption to COVID-19 vaccination rules. The top-ranked Djokovic announced on social media Tuesday that he had “exemption permission” and he landed in Australia late Wednesday with a medical exemption from the Victoria state government that was expected to shield him from the strict vaccination regulations in place for this year’s first major tennis tournament.

In Retention in Melbourne In order not to have respected the entry rules on the Australian territory, the Serbian tennisman Novak Djokovic has transmitted documents to the Federal Court indicating that the Physician of Tennis Aru Arala had exempted it, like He claimed it before. This Saturday, the lawyers of the global number of tennis asserted that the player had been exempted from vaccination by the Australian Federation, recently contracted CVIV-19 . Later in the day, the Australian Federal Court published the player's medical exemption. It confirms this version. From the beginning of the case, Novak Djokovic had contested the Australian decision. He was denied his Australian visa Wednesday as he went to the island to compete at the Australian Open, who must start on January 17, 2022. Since then, he was detained in a retention center, pending the examination of his appeal, on Monday. Who is wrong? A PCR test dating from December 16 would have allowed him to obtain this derogation from Tennis Australia. It remains to be determined who wrongly in this case. The Tennis Federation, an organizer of the Australian Open, is accused of induced players wrongly about VVID-19 vaccination obligations to enter the country. The Australian rules are very stringent (almost the strictest in the world, there are few exceptions): The borders are closed to tourists, foreigners with a visa must be able to present a vaccination against CVIV-19. In a note sent to the players and published by several Australian media, the officials of the Australian Open ensured that a person who recently contracted CVIV-19 could benefit from an exemption for the obligation to be fully vaccinated. The Australian government, however, clarified that this provision was only valid for Australian residents. He added that the Ministry of Health had alerted Tennis Australia in November. Verdict Monday, 7 days from the beginning of the competition.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Weary after two years of some of the harshest COVID-19 border restrictions in the world, many Australians wanted Novak Djokovic kicked out of their country for traveling to a tennis tournament in their country without being vaccinated. But the backdrop to the government's tough line on the defending Australian Open champion — and Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s description of the expulsion as a “decision to keep our borders strong” — dates to nearly a decade ago. It also shines a light on Australia's complicated, and strongly criticized, immigration and border policies.
