The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star flew Down Under earlier this year (11) to appear as a special guest at the Melbourne Cup Derby Day and to launch her handbag range.

But she only visited the country on a tourist visa and failed to apply for the correct work permit which would allow her to conduct business.

A subsequent investigation found that Kardashian also visited the country last year (10) and in 2007 for business reasons but on tourist visas.

A statement from the Department of Immigration to the Herald Sun reads, "If people are undertaking work in Australia, they need to be on an appropriate visa with work conditions attached to it.

"If people do breach conditions, then the department can counsel them or cancel that person's visa... and the department may record their breaches and immigration history. Their history would be taken into account if they apply for another visa to enter Australia."
