Travel to Australia from India becomes criminal offense

The Australian government has decided to introduce fines of up to $ 66,600 or five years in prison, if not both, for those who decide to travel from India to Australia.

The travel ban from India to Australia officially begins on Monday, the first time the country has banned its own citizens from returning home.

Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt announced on Friday evening the strengthening of border controls, saying whoever would break the rules would be fined up to $ 66,600 or five years in prison or both.

Although the government had banned all direct flights from India earlier this week, the decision on the criminal sanctions comes after two Australian cricketers arrived in Australia after transiting through Qatar.

This sanction will come into effect from Monday and will be reviewed on May 15.
