Moreover, using this rule, which came into effect on February 28, 2019, Australia intends to send a message to the perpetrators of domestic violence. The government may also remove convicted domestic abusers holding visas and residing in the country.

The Federal Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, and Multicultural Affairs, David Coleman, stated publicly that Australia has no tolerance for perpetrators of violence and that the country would not welcome any criminal convicted of violence against women and children, regardless of the origin where the offense happened and the sentence adjudicated.
