Border force personnel in Sale

UNIFORMED Australian Border Force personnel in unmarked cars made a surprise visit to a Sale nail business on Wednesday in what was believed to be a visa-related check.

One customer in the shop said staff were visibly shaken after the visit.

The Department of Home Affairs recommends employers check the work entitlements of employees via the department’s Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO), which is free and available around the clock.

The Australian Border Force media unit was contacted for comment regarding the visit of personnel to Sale, but none had been received at the time of going to print.
