Restrictions on entry
Jun 2, 2001
Do you know whether Japan has restrictions on entry to the country by persons who have HIV? Can I be denied entry with HIV medications? I got a scholarship to study there. I want to realize it. So far, no requirement for anti-HIV test. I can come back to see my doctor every 6 or 3 months if necessary. Thank you very much for your great help.

I don't have the answer to that one, but you might consider contacting an immigration lawyer or a local HIV support organization (e.g., GMHC).
