(2) Before the Governor-General makes regulations for the purposes of subsection (1) prescribing either or both of the following:
(a) a provision of this Act that is not to apply to a person or entity;
(b) a person to whom, or an entity to which, a provision of this Act is not to apply;
the Minister must be satisfied that the provision should not apply to the person or entity in Australia because there is not a sufficient connection between the person or entity and Australia.
