Coming home from OVERSEAS!...fines will I get arrested ?HELP

Postby baddriver82 » Thu Jun 18, 2015 9:07 pm

Hi everyoen,

I have been in America last few years on a working visa and will be returning to Melbourne next month!... I have a bunch of fines from citylink,parking tickets and two POLICE speeding fines!
WELL OVER DUE all of them!....will I be arrested when I land back in Melbs ? ...I have never had the sheriff come and see me personally or been ordered to court over this!
BUT they would be 3 years old at least these fines!

Could I land in Bris or Sydney and train home ?.....PLEASES HELP ....I plan on paying them off!.... I just dont want to be the dude arrested at Melb airports over fines lol

Regards,

BADDRIVER ;)

That is the second-most stupid question I get asked every week.

PLEASE answer Hardy!...not trying to be a goose! just worried that's all mate!...
I hear Victoria has clammed down hard on fines, and infringements last few years that I have been away!
Will I have any issues landing back in Australia ?

P.s will need to use your Services when I land in Melbs to minimize these fines etc!

You won't have any issues, you won't be arrested at the airport etc.

The sheriff's may catch up with at some point in the future, so you can either wait until then or contact them once you are here if you're that worried about it and sort it out with them.
