Chris Brown seems like he can never catch a break. The New Zealand Herald reports that Chris Brown was denied entry into New Zealand because of previous immigration issues with the UK. It was announced that Chris Brown was scheduled to perform in New Zealand in December for his One Hell of a Night world tour.

Chris Brown was denied entry into the UK back in 2010 for his assault on Rihanna. At the time the UK home office said:

We reserve the right to refuse entry to the UK to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offence. Public safety is one of our primary concerns. Each application to enter the UK is considered on its individual merits.

Because of this incident, New Zealand has laws set that if you are rejected entrance into any country, you are not allowed to enter New Zealand. Today, New Zealand immigration confirmed that Breezy’s denial into the UK back in 2010 means he cannot come into their country as well.

Marc Piercey, a New Zealand Immigration Spokesman had this to say:

If Chris Brown has been excluded from another country he will be ineligible to be granted a visa to enter New Zealand unless given a special direction.

However, Section 17 of the Immigration Act 2009 allows exceptions to be given to a person who is not eligible for a visa. So their is a chance for Chris Brown to still be allowed into New Zealand.

A spokeswoman for Immigration Minister Michael Woodhouse said any decision about a special direction for Chris Brown will come from them, and not the Prime Minister.

Special direction is granted by INZ, not the Minister.

Hopefully Chris is allowed to preform for his New Zealand fans, who haven’t had the chance to see him since 2009.
