Two German members of the Gypsy Jokers Outlaw Motor Cycle Gang (OMCG), one member of the gang’s Norway chapter and two Spanish gang associates have been refused entry into Australia by Australian Border Force (ABF) officers at Perth Airport.
The German men, aged 33 and 61, arrived in Perth on a flight from Hong Kong on Monday night (15 April 2019). The Spanish men, aged 43 and 44, also arrived on Monday on a flight from Dubai. The 34 years old Norwegian arrived on a flight from Singapore on Wednesday (17 April 2019).
All five men were questioned and it was established they had travelled to Perth to attend an event celebrating the 50thanniversary of the Gypsy Jokers OMCG.

The men were all holding eVisitor 651 visas which were cancelled under s116(1)(e)(i) of the Migration Act on the basis that they presented a risk to the health, safety or good order of the Australian community, or a segment of the community.

ABF Regional Commander for WA, Rod O’Donnell, said the ABF maintains a strong focus on working with its law enforcement partners in disrupting the activities of outlaw motorcycle gangs in the ongoing fight to protect the Australian community.
“These gangs pose a significant threat to our community and are known to be involved in serious criminal activity including drug trafficking and violent crime,” Commander O’Donnell said.
 “Any non-citizen involved with a criminal organisation, including outlaw motorcycle gangs, can expect to have their Australian visa cancelled on arrival and be removed from the country.”
The men were held in the Perth Immigration Detention Centre pending their removal from Australia. The Spanish nationals were removed on Tuesday night (16/4/2019), with the Germans and Norwegian removed on Thursday
