15 Jun Can you leave #COVID19 Aus to attend a wedding?
A couple has challenged the Australian Border Force’s decision to refuse to grant them an exemption to depart Australia to attend their son’s wedding in the US. The court found that:
The ABF did not apply an incorrect test in assessing the evidence.
The emergency nature of the administrative power meant: the ABF did not need to provide a concise decision referring to every piece of evidence provided & that the ABF did not need to afford procedural fairness since the parties were legally represented and there was no adverse information considered that they weren’t aware of.
