Australia Visa denied for renowned footballer
Paul Parker has been denied Australia Visa for travel by working as a TV soccer analyst.
He was appointed by the FFNT (Football Federation Northern Territory) as a coaching consultant and was scheduled to commence his work 1 week ago. At present, Paul Parker is in Singapore and has already applied for Australian Visa for “Distinguished Talent”. Only after getting this section of Australian Visa, he would be able to commence his work with the FFNT.
According to the Department of Immigration & Citizenship (DIAC) Australia, which looks after the matters related to Australia immigration, Australia Visa to travel does not permit the visa holder to work while in the country. Paul Parker, who was working as a soccer analyst breached the conditions and has been entitled of exile.
“He will be heading our indigenous program. Hopefully he’ll have some sort of involvement with the NT’s Timor Sea Cup side, work with school sports and with look at club development. They will keep him busy.” he added. FFNT is very much keen to see Parker back to the job at his earliest, provided he secures the correct for of Australia Visa.
Daymon Port, who is technical director of FFNT said, “Everything has been left as is”.
It should be noted that FFNT is a non-profit organisation which has contributed remarkably to promote football game in the country. Working with it is an opportunity that anybody cant afford to miss. In fact, Parker is trying his best to get the things on track.
