It looks like it'll be two months max:

The Office of Budget and Management has up to 60 days to respond to the CDCís approval. Once this has been granted, the travel ban will be finally removed.

The final rule on removing HIV from the list of communicable diseases has been posted, finally that horrible ban is over and we can be a country of liberty and freedom for all.

Through this final rule, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is amending its regulations to remove ``Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection'' from the definition of communicable disease of public health significance and remove references to `HIV'' from the scope of examinations for aliens. Prior to this final rule, aliens with HIV infection were considered to have a communicable disease of public health significance and were thus inadmissible to the United States per the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). While HIV infection is a serious health condition, it is not a communicable disease that is a significant public health risk for introduction, transmission, and spread to the U.S. population through casual contact. As a result of this final rule, aliens will no longer be inadmissible into the United States based solely on the ground they are infected with HIV, and they will not be required to undergo HIV testing as part of the required medical examination for U.S. immigration.

DATES: This final rule is effective January 4, 2010.
