The rapper has finally been granted a visa to enter Australia, allowing him to embark on a long-pending tour Down Under, after a full character assessment by the immigration department that included, among other things, a letter supporting Snoop’s application by the Oscar-winning actor.
“I submit to you that Snoop Dogg poses no threat to Australia or to any individual in this country,” Crowe wrote in his letter to officials.
While the Aussie’s epistle no doubt gave the 36-year-old reality star’s file an A-list boost, it wasn’t the only piece of information taken into account by the immigration officials.
“The department weighed his criminal convictions against his previous behavior while in Australia,” the government said in a statement. “We took into account all relevant factors and, on balance, the department decided to grant the visa.”
