I got a fine, about $20 - $30 or so, for not wearing a helmet whilst cycling on the road in Australia which is fair enough, the Police guy told me that i didn't need to pay it as long as i have no intention of coming back to Aus as i may have visa problems. So i am guessing you wont get a visa until you pay the fine, and even if you do you may still not get one.

It would be outright stupid to return under threat of imprisonment but why do you care?

So many other fun cheap interesting friendly places to visit and none have meat pies!
