Novak Djokovic cleared to play in Australian Open 2023 despite refusing to get Covid vaccination

The world number 6 from Serbia was deported from Australia last year as he maintained his unvaccinated stand against Covid-19

After his visa fiasco at the Australian Open 2022, Novak Djokovic has been cleared to play in the Grand Slam event next year.

According to a report in the Herald Sun, with a new government coming on power in May during the Federal Election, new Immigration Minister Andrew Giles has reportedly decided in principle to overturn the 3-year travel ban on Djokovic, if he appeals it.

The world number 6 from Serbia was deported from Australia last year as he maintained his unvaccinated stand against Covid-19. Djokovic received a medical exemption to play at the Australian Open but had to fly back home when he lost a court battle after his visa was cancelled.

His refusal to take the Covid-19 jab didn't allow him to compete at this year's US Open as well.
