Tennis Legend Novak Djokovic Hops On An Emirates Flight To Dubai After Australia Cancels His Visa

Novak Djokovic has been deported from Australia ahead of the Australian Open, an annually held tennis tournament. He sought to restore his visa, however, the court rejected his challenge to the decision of the Australian immigration minister, Alex Hawke, to cancel his visa.

You see, he had won the first appeal against the initial decision to cancel his visa at the border, but later overturning the government’s intervention was unsuccessful under the country’s Migrations Act.

He was detained for 10 days upon arrival in Melbourne after border forces proved his medical exemption against COVID-19 vaccination was insufficient.

Novak was on the Emirates flight leaving Melbourne at 10:30pm and will be arriving tomorrow at 5:30am

Australia and sports fans from all over the world have been keeping up with Novak Djokovic’s case since the beginning – since him being unvaccinated was a rumour

Some stood with and some stood against the tennis player. Others actually took to the streets of Melbourne, outside the Australian Open to protest.

After the ruling was declared, however, Novak faced immediate deportation and news sources reported that he’ll be on the 10:30pm (3:30pm UAE time) flight to Dubai.

FlightTrader 24 on Twitter, which records and tracks air traffic in real-time, stated Novak’s flight is the most tracked flight

The 13-hour flight started at 10:30 pm (3:30pm Dubai time) and is expected to arrive at 5am (Dubai time). No one knows where he’ll go next or if Dubai is a stop on his journey.
