Australian officials have reportedly denied prominent Chinese businessman and political donor Huang Xiangmo a passport, leaving him stranded in Beijing.

Mr Huang has been told his application to become an Australian citizen has been turned down and permanent residency cancelled, according to The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.

The Communist Party-aligned businessman, who has donated money to both Labor and the coalition, has been living in Sydney with his wife and children since 2011.

He made headlines in 2017 when it was revealed his company paid former federal senator Sam Dastyari's personal legal bills and appeared alongside him at a press conference for Chinese media where he supported Beijing's stance on the South China Sea, contradicting Labor's position.
