Australia is none too pleased with Kim Kardashian, according to reports from down under.

The country's immigration department has placed her on its watch list after she allegedly breached the terms of her visa three times, Australia's Daily Telegraph reports.

When she visited the nation last month just after she filed for a divorce from Kris Humphries, Kardashian reportedly went on a tourist visa — even though she was there on a much-publicized business trip to promote her new Kardashian Kollection line of handbags.

According to the Daily Telegraph, she made two similar business trips in years past — also traveling as a tourist.

The paper reported that Australian immigration authorities wouldn't comment directly on Kardashian but did reiterate their stance on visa violations.

"If people are undertaking work in Australia, they need to be on an appropriate visa with work conditions attached," said the department.

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

TV watchers in the U.S. might not be rid of Kim Kardashian — but if she isn't careful about staying on the right side of immigration law, Australia might be.
