Bobby Brown To Perform In New Zealand, Runs Into Visa Problems
Reportedly, Bobby Brown is expected to be performing in New Zealand, but authorities are wondering if he should be able to enter the country due to his previous past and problems with the law.
While authorities question whether or not the singer will be allowed into New Zealand, it seems that he has failed to apply for his visa prior to his scheduled performance dates.
“This application should be lodged as soon as possible in order to be considered,” stated Api Fiso, Department of Labor group manager for border security.
“As with all visa applications, the applicant must meet the standard entry requirements including health and character requirements.”
Api Fiso also stated that all musical entertainers who wishes to work in New Zealand would have to apply for a work via, in which Bobby Brown’s representative has already been told.
Community paper called The Rotorua Review, brought Brown’s past to the forefront and even made a post on their website that stated that no one with his type of background should be allowed into New Zealand.
“Aspects of Brown’s questionable past, an unenviable litany of malevolence involving…sexual battery and drug use offenses, have been raised with the (immigration) department,” the report said.
The singer is expected to perform in Rotorua on July 15 and Auckland on the 17.
Tickets for the Rotorua concert went on sale last week at $54 each according to The Rotorua Review.
