Kanye West could face a giant road block when he attempts to enter Australia to visit the family of his new wife Bianca Censori, and apparently it has everything to do with his blatant hate speech over the past few months.
Ye tied the knot with Bianca Censori in a private ceremony at the top of 2023, but it seems the couple haven’t yet filed a marriage certificate to make it legal.
The 45-year-old rapper is reportedly planning a trip to Censori’s hometown in Melbourne, though he could potentially be barred from even entering Australia over his antisemitic comments in the past.
Australian government officials said that there is a chance West could be barred from entering the country at all based off his oppressive remarks, as Australia apparently has a history of turning away people with antisemitic beliefs.

Australia’s Education Minister Jason Clare implied they could potentially turn Ye away.
Jason Clare spoke to local channel, said plainly that if Kanye applies for a visa, he’ll face the same vetting process as other applicants. Australia has a long history of turning away people with antisemitic beliefs.
“I expect that if he does apply, he would have to go through the same process and answer the same questions,”

It is not currently clear whether West has applied for a visa, though the odds aren’t looking great for him even if he does.
An entry ban wouldn’t be the best way for West and Censori to start off their new relationship after tying the knot in a private ceremony earlier this month.
