Back in September, Australia’s Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce talked about banning Chris Brown from entering the country.
‘This is an argument I have with my daughters who want him to come in, God help us,’ Mr Joyce said as he laughed. ‘But he has served five years probation in the US. We have said that we have an intent not to let him in. He now has to prove he is worthy of coming in the door.’ (Daily Mail UK)
Days prior, Australia immigration minister Peter Dutton announced the government intended to deny his visa request.
“I can confirm that a notice of intention to consider refusal has been issued. People to whom these notices are issued have 28 days to present material as to why they should be given a visa to enter Australia. Decisions on whether a visa will or will not be issued are made after that timeframe and consideration of the material presented to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.” (Statement)
