Greeks Visiting Australia for Work Face Being Deported

Greeks – along with other tourists who come to Australia – and don’t have return tickets and proof of enough money to stay in the country for as long as their visa lasts, are likely to be put on the next plane back home or held in a detention center.

The newspaper Neos Kosmos said at least 20 Greeks were held before being deported because they could not meet Australia’s strict policy for visiting, although there was no confirmation from the Australian  Ministry of  Immigration.

There has been a significant increase in Greeks coming to Australia for vacations or short visits but who are said to also be looking for work and avoid returning to Greece as it undergoes a crushing economic crisis. The hard-line Australian policy even applies to ex-patriates holding Australian passports.
