Key points: Novak Djokovic's visa was cancelled a second time on health and public interest grounds.
Novak Djokovic's visa was cancelled a second time on health and public interest grounds The Serbian star has been asked to attend an interview tomorrow with immigration officials.
The cancellation of Mr Djokovic's visa by Immigration Minister Alex Hawke late this afternoon is the subject of a directions hearing in the Federal Circuit and Family Court tonight.
Lawyers for Mr Djokovic flagged that they would be challenging the minister's reasons for cancelling the visa, including that allowing Mr Djokovic to stay would "excite anti-vax sentiment" in the Australian community.
Mr Djokovic's lawyer, Nick Wood, said the minister's reasons were "patently irrational" and did not consider that deporting Mr Djokovic could also stir up anti-vax sentiment.
Hours later he had his visa cancelled on the grounds that he did not meet the federal entry requirement of being double-vaccinated.
Mr Rizvi also said it was possible Mr Djokovic could apply for a bridging visa and the minister might grant that. »
