The world number one announced in an Instagram post last week he had been granted an exemption to travel to Australia, but was detained on arrival in Melbourne just before midnight on January 5.
He spent the night in immigration detention and was interviewed before his visa was cancelled.
On January 10, the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia ruled Djokovic’s visa was unreasonably cancelled, and ordered him to be released from detention.
At the same time, details were emerging about his movements in Europe before he landed in Melbourne.
Djokovic tested positive to COVID-19 while in Serbia on December 16. He later took part in a photoshoot and interview with French publication L’Equipe.
The star later said he did not know he had COVID-19 when he went to two events — the unveiling of a Djokovic stamp and a tennis awards ceremony attended by children.
But he did acknowledge he was knowingly positive while attending the interview with the French magazine, which he issued an apology for on January 12.
Tonight, Immigration Minister Alex Hawke used his ministerial powers to cancel Djokovic’s visa, saying the decision was made “in the public interest”.
