Traveling to Russia
« on: April 13, 2012, 09:42:08 PM »
Okay, I just found out I have to travel to Moscow on business.  Just for a week.  I have also heard that you cannot enter Russia if you are HIV positive.  I have also heard you can simply not declare your status and not disclose your antiretroviral meds when you enter.  Has anyone experienced this?  I haven't filled out the visa application yet, but I am wondering if it will ask me if I have a communicable disease.  Again, some say to lie.  I am healthy and undetectable, but this is really freaking me out.  Can anyone help/advise?

That would be incorrect. As long as you're staying there for less than three months you don't need to disclose your HIV status when you enter the country. See below.


- There are no restrictions or regulations concerning the entry of people with HIV/AIDS to Russia. There are no regulations targeting short term tourist stays.

- Non-Russian citizens staying in Russia for less than 3 months do not need to provide information about HIV status.

- All foreigners planning to travel or reside in the Russian Federation for longer than three months must provide a medical certificate of a negative test for infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

You can read more about travel restrictions to Russia and other countries here:


So, stress not and enjoy your trip  :)
