A breach of any of these conditions

Hello,

I read this:

A breach of any of these conditions may result in your visa being cancelled and you may have to leave Australia.
Is there any discernible difference if reworded as follows:

Any breach of these conditions may result in your visa being cancelled and you may have to leave Australia.
I cannot sense a difference.

    You are correct. There is no difference in sense between these two phrases.

    The second wording allows for the further slight amendment to "breach or breaches" which would refer to more than one breach, but since a single breach is sufficient to warrant cancellation of the visa then this is not necessary.

    Thank you very much for your kind reply, Gordonedi.
