Title: Travelling to United States for a month
Post by: Mojito on October 05, 2019, 06:45:43 am
I would be travelling to USA this month for 3 - 4 weeks. I plan to carry my ARV medicines with doctor's prescription in my hand baggage. Other than ARV, i do not take any other medication. In addition, I would have travel and medical insurance.
Do I need to worry about anything else? Just to add, this is my first visit to USA after getting diagnosed with HIV

I've never had any problems, my next trip over to the US is next week Sunday - Friday, in Florida. I always carry a months worth just encase I stay unforseen longer

I carry my meds in hand luggage, never any issues.
Enjoy your trip. Is it work or pleasure??

it's a good time to come to NC. No hurricanes are around right now, and the temperature is finally cooling down some. Enjoy your trip!

hurricanes, floods, snowstorms, and even earthquakes and volcanoes (very unpredictable situations) can interrupt air travel so it's always important to take at least several days (if not more) extra meds just in case the unforseen happens.

I wouldn't expect any issue from customs.  Shame you are not coming in late spring or early summer.  The east coast looks it's best when everything is green.

Thanks everyone for your help. My entry to USA was non eventful. These guys were more concerned about the pack of biscuit left in my bag than my ARV medicines 😂. Had a pretty nice time. Met an old friend after years. Would be leaving coming weekend.
