    Can my re-entrance to Australia be denied because of an unpaid flight ticket in my name but supposed to have been paid by a third party?

    In this case, the travel agency sent an invoice for the ticket to a company that was supposed to pay the ticket for me. I took the flight to leave Australia but the Company that was supposed to pay the ticket did not do so.

    Under Australian Law, can my re-entry to Australia be denied if the travel agent goes to the court?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Winston, I don't see what interest immigration would have in whether or not your ticket has been paid. I also doubt that an airline would hold sufficient sway to convince immigration to deny you your right of entry into a country because someone else did not pay their debt. However, I am no expert. Has this happened to someone else?
