Australia's Minister for Education Jason Clare said the government down under is being pressured to deny the rapper entry.
"People like that who've applied for visas to get into Australia in the past have been rejected," the official — who called the comments "awful" — told CNN affiliate Nine News. "I expect that if he does apply he would have to go through the same process and answer the same questions that they did."
According to TMZ, Kanye and his new "wife" Bianca Censori, who's Australian, are supposed to head to Melbourne next week to meet her family.
In the past, Australia has refused to give visas to people for failing the "good character" test, and many of those same people have far-right views, as Ye does.
Last fall, the rapper shocked the world when he tweeted, "I'm a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I'm going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE." He then defended himself by adding, "The funny thing is I actually can't be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also. You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda." Twitter responded by suspending Ye's account for violating its policies.
He then said he was "happy" to have "crossed the line." In a chat with Piers Morgan, Ye admitted that his words were racist but wasn't sorry. Kanye then befriended white nationalist Nick Fuentes and appeared on Alex Jones' "Infowars." While on the show he praised the Nazis and said, "I like Hitler."
