Touristic travel to New York

Jul 8, 2008

Congratulations doctor for your Forum here. Very useful! I am a European Union citizen (no need to ask for a Visa) and am planning a week of holiday in New York with friends from work. The only problem is that i'm hiv+ under medication. So my question is will I be banned from entering US or I should travel anyway? My travel friends don't know about my 'positive status' and I just don't want them to know it in some american airport.

Response from Dr. Frascino


You should be fine. Customs agents aren't really searching for HIV medications. We are also hopeful that this shameful travel ban may soon be lifted!

Bon voyage.

Dr. Bob
