Taken from the doorstop interview in Melbourne today this is part of the transcript, authorised by Greg Hunt MP, Liberal Party of Australia, Somerville, Victoria:

JOURNALIST: Would Australia consider giving the young Saudi Arabian girl in Bangkok a visa? 

GREG HUNT: Look, I spoke with Minister Coleman last night. He worked very, very hard to ensure that the United Nations High Commission for Refugees began an expedited assessment process for Miss Alqunun. He has been successful in securing that process. So I want to thank and acknowledge the work of David Coleman on that front. We’ll await the findings in terms of refugee status but he has indicated that he is very, very, very focused on this process, on ensuring that it proceeds rapidly, and if it is found that she is a refugee then he’ll consider it with a very, very open mind.

The Department of Home Affairs (including its independent operational arm, the Australian Border Force, referred to in this notice together as ‘the Department’) will exchange data with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to identify whether business sponsors are complying with their sponsorship obligations (eg, paying visa holders correctly) and whether temporary skilled visa holders are complying with their visa conditions (eg, to work only for an approved employer, and to work only in the approved occupation). Where non-compliance is identified further compliance action may be taken (eg consideration given to cancellation of a visa or the approval of a sponsor).

In this data exchange program the Department is the source and primary user agency whilst the ATO is the matching agency. The Department will provide to the ATO

  • biographical details, including name, address and date of birth of clients who are, or were in the three most recently completed financial years, holders of Temporary Work (Skilled) (subclass 457) or Temporary Skills Shortage (subclass 482) primary visas; and
  • details of the these clients’ business sponsors

These details will be electronically matched against ATO data holdings. Where there is a match, the ATO will return income and employment data for the relevant individual(s) to the Department. Data will be exchanged on a periodic basis. It is estimated that the total number of records shared will be around 680,000 which represents around 280,000 individuals.

About 500 criminals who committed violent offences are among those stripped of their visas, including 13 for murder, seven for manslaughter, 125 for assault and 56 for armed robbery.

Minister for Home Affairs Peter Dutton said the Government is committed to protecting our communities and keeping Australians safe.

“There’s no place in our country for people who come here and harm Australians,” Mr Dutton said

“We welcome people from all round the world, but those few who think they can live in Australia and be involved in criminal actions need to know they won’t be staying long.”

Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs David Coleman said the Government was sending a strong message to non-citizen law breakers.
