TRAVELING ABROAD
      #207416 - 09/16/06 01:52 PM

Does anyone know where I could find a listing of countries that may require an HIV test for entry as a tourist? Or what specific countries deny entry to individuals who are HIV positive? I read an article about this recently and am planning a trip abroad soon and would hate to get caught up in a big mess of red tape!!! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thank you!

The United States has serious restrictions, so does Russia. Australia may also be strict depending on how long you wish to stay.
However, the vast vast majority of countries have no resrtictions on HIV+ individuals who wish to visit a country as a tourist (applying for a residence/work visa is a much more complicated matter). In fact the European Union countries are applying pressure on the American government to get rid of this discriminatory law that applies here in the USA. I was shocked to hear of it. This law is wrong and backward-thinking ! So much for tolerance in the free world.
Here is a complete list of countries and the restrictions they may or may not apply : http://www.aidsnet.ch/modules.php?name=Content&pa=list_pages_categories&cid=5&newlang=english
Go on holiday to Europe and you will be fine.
Have fun !

Unless you are on meds, how would these countries even know you're hiv+?

some countries require blood work to enter for travel... mainly because the us has been so f'd up with requiring it! so other countries are counter acting and requiring it as well. oi!
