Were you aware that the USA does not permit HIV+ tourists to travel into the United States?


This policy is shared by the United States with Russia, China and many Arab countries but with 1 million HIV+ US citizens already living in the US does this policy make any sense?

I was not aware of that.
I can understand not wanting to possibly spread a disease as motivation for not permitting tourists to come here, but because we know how it is transmitted I don't think it makes sense. Maybe the policy is older and we didn't understand the disease as well when the policy was implemented?

Yes and yes.

No - it really makes no sense to me. I wonder, though, how they check. Are they required to submit to an HIV test before they can get a VISA? Seems to me this would be a very hard thing to enforce but I really don't know.

You said tourists, so yes, makes sense. Citizens we must deal with because they are already here.

True and HIV + inmates can not qualify for work release projects either.
