Hopes that restrictions on entry to the US for people with HIV will finally be removed were raised when the US government indicated that it had completed a review of the removal of HIV from the list of communicable diseases that prevent entry to the US.

Once the regulations have been removed, HIV will no longer be a bar for entry to the US for visitors or migrants.

There will now be two periods of consultation, which could see the ban finally removed by late 2009.

“We are only one important step closer to finally ending this discriminatory ban once and for all”, said Joe Solmonese of Human Rights Campaign, a New York-based advocacy organisation.

Almost a year ago, legislation that bans HIV-positive non-US citizens from entering the United States in all but exceptional circumstances was repealed. However, separate regulations dating from 1987 remained in place.

This meant that HIV-positive individuals could not enter the US even for travel without first obtaining a visa. The process for obtaining a visa was recently streamlined, but there have been numreous reports of visas being refused and people with HIV being refused entry to the US if they travelled without the correct documentation.

This is very promising news!  I had no idea they were planning to include migrants I thought it would only be people on travel visas.
