Djokovic court application shows he tested positive for COVID on 16 December

Novak Djokovic, who is fighting deportation from Australia, tested positive for COVID-19 on 16 December, according to court documents.

The world tennis number one was refused entry and his visa was cancelled earlier this week.

Djokovic said in his court application that he had a valid visa and medical exemption from the organiser of the Australian Open.

Why is Djokovic being denied entry to Australia – and what are their travel rules?


He is currently embroiled in a row over whether he is exempt from the country’s COVID vaccination rules.

The application says he had a document from the Department of Home Affairs confirming he met the requirements for quarantine-free travel.

Djokovic is spending a third day in a Melbourne hotel that has doubled up as an immigration detention facility – a couple of miles from the luxury hotels where most Australian Open players are staying.
