Mike Tyson: Welcome in Hong Kong, New Zealand Say No, Australia Still Deciding

October 4th, 2012

Posted in Employment Visas, Musing, The Hong Kong Visa Geeza /


Well, it’s hardly news that convicted rapist Mike Tyson made it to Hong Kong last month.

At least now know the impact  a criminal record can have on your application for an employment visa here (maybe).

What is news is that New Zealand yesterday decided they didn’t want to have him grace their shores after all, whilst the Aussies are still making their mind up.

UPDATE: October 10, 2012 – Mr Tyson is granted a visa to undertake his dog & pony show in Australia.
