visa issue
Dec 26, 2012

hello, i heard australia and canada do not allow visa to hiv poz people for long term stay (approx 7 years). is it true? is it same for married couple too? how can a developed nation like austraia and canada can do this discrimination? and what about usa? ragards...

Response from Mr. Chambers

Australia does require testing if you are going on a work or study on a long term basis. Short visits are not a problem. See this site.

Canada's rules are similar.

Here is a site that gives you information about most countries.

For this issue, there is no difference between single and married. They look at each person individually.
