Be it a sanctioned individual, entity or region, they require different sanction regimes. To set an example, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade sanctions list may include general or specific restrictions on:
- having business relationships with designated person or entity;
- executing sanctioned services;
- import and export of sanctioned goods;
- engaging in sanctioned commercial activities;
- designated persons entering or transiting through Australia;
All of these cases differ in restrictive measures applied to them. Some of the regimes of DFAT sanctions include Counter-terrorism, ISIL (Da'esh) and Al-Qaida, Crimea and Sevastopol, Iran, Russia, The Taliban, Syria, Myanmar, Somalia, Yemen, etc.
For individuals subjected to these and other sanctioned regimes, these measures mean that they may be blocked from traveling to, leading business with, shipping goods to/from, trading and providing services in Australia.
