Hi all, it has been a while since my last question. But I really need you guys to help to find out if I should take the short term job in china for 6 months... Since the lift of HIV ban in china last year. I am still worry whether the will require HIV test to work there? I've been offering an opportunity for 6 months but freaking out if I will be denied entry and deport back to my country with a stamp "entry bar" which will also result the termination from my current job... Please, if any of u guys familiar with china policy would appreciate your help as I need to notify my employer by 24 hours!!!!

Hey Jing, nice to hear from you!

I wish I could give you a definitive answer but I cannot when it comes to work visa..  :-[

I have been trying to keep track of the development, but so far only manage to confirm that for tourist/travel visa, there's no need now to make any declaration of one's HIV status. It should of course be noted that many HIV+ folks did go without making any declaration (just like entry to the US) and there was no need for a test, but one did run the risk of being found out and deported. It's no longer the case, at least for tourists.

But for employment visa (or Z visa), I have been told that a health certificate is STILL required. I have come across a recent case of a Hong Kong-based expat who tried to apply, but decided not to after being that he would still need to go through a health test that included HIV. And another expat based in Shanghai told me recently that a HIV test is still included in their annual work visa renewal process.

It's still afternoon in Malaysia, perhaps you can make a call to the China Embassy in KL?

Wish you luck! Shaun

Hi Shaun~
thanks for your help. I've check the website and found out HIV screening is mandatory, so, I think I will have to inform my employer that I am unable to go... This is really frustrating and he had demanded an answer if I cant go...ah, this is driving me crazy..
