Nauru cancels all Australian and NZ visitors' visas

NAURU has abruptly cancelled all visitor visas for Australian and New Zealand passport holders, according to the country's airline.

The decision took effect late on Thursday, meaning some passengers were unable to board Friday's 1:00am flight from Brisbane to Nauru via Honiara.

An airline spokeswoman said the ban would remain in place until further notice, and passengers would be given full refunds.

The Nauru Government said it made the decision after a member of the media entered the country on a tourist visa without properly declaring who they worked for.

"Changes in visa policy implemented after ABC dishonestly entered country as tourist and failed to declare they were media," the Government said on its Twitter account before deleting the tweet.
