According to the "Herald Sun" report, last year, more than 1200 foreigners had their visas cancelled due to assaults and drug-related crimes.

Statistics show that in 2017-18, among the people whose visas were cancelled by the Department of Home Affairs due to moral issues, there were 620 New Zealanders, 124 British, 55 Vietnamese and 31 Sudanese.

Last year, about 500 people were withdrawn due to attacks and drug crimes. Many people are involved in violent crime, armed robbery and child sex crime.


Recently, it is reported that the government will take further measures to expand the applicable scope of relevant mandatory regulations and expel more foreign-born violent and sex offenders.

The new bill on visa cancellation will apply to persons convicted of a crime and sentenced to two years or more in prison, including children. Even if they are eventually exempt from jail or sentenced to less than 12 months in prison, their visas will be revoked. According to the current law, non-Australian citizens will only be revoked due to "misconduct" if they are convicted of a serious crime and have been in jail for at least 12 months.

The targets of the new bill include criminals of violent and sexual crimes, such as trespassing homes, serious robberies, and serious violations of domestic violence prohibitions.

Immigration Minister David Coleman said earlier that this reform will help ensure the safety of Australia's multicultural society. "The bill conveys a clear and clear message on behalf of the Australian society that only those of good character have the privilege of coming to or staying in Australia... The government will not tolerate non-citizens who have been convicted of serious crimes."
