A Dutchman living in Sydney says he was denied permission to leave the country and visited his dying father by Internal Affairs Minister Peter Dutton before having to attend the funeral on Skype.

Jean Franco Vilaro Campos, who moved to Sydney in June 2015 on a student visa, discovered last August that his father Salvador was seriously ill in Colombia after suffering a stroke.

After meeting with his partner Robert Wills a year after arriving in Sydney, he later canceled his student visa and transferred to a bridge visa while waiting for his partner visa to arrive.

But according to the terms of the visa he had at the time, Mr. Campos had restrictions to return to the country if he was going to visit his dying father.

The man was able to contact Mr. Dutton's office, but could not successfully request a compassionate leave of two weeks.

The story of Mr. Campos comes when Peter Dutton suffers a storm of criticism over allegations that he intervened to help two European au pairs stay in Australia.

Mr. Campos told Channel 7: "Our request was denied in 24 hours and my father died on September 1st.

The man was able to contact Mr. Dutton's office, but was unable to apply for permission successfully.

"I attended his funeral by Skype, it was the most horrible and harrowing situation I've had in my entire life."

"My dad told me: 'Yes, I want to see you, that's my last wish, but do not do anything you can regret. & # 39;

Mr. Dutton explained in a letter that, although he acknowledged Mr. Campos' mitigating circumstances, he could not consider letting him leave the country and then return.

He told Mr. Campos that he could still apply for a visa from abroad.

He added that given his visa status and given his need to travel imminently, it was his only option.
