« on: August 28, 2019, 03:53:33 pm »
Hi everyone.

My current fiancÚ has proposed me marriage these days. I'm visiting USA and I'm from south America. He's going to request for the K1 Visa for the marriage, it includes a medical examination, do u guys know if with my condition, the embassy or migration department might reject the wedding or civil status change, residence, etc?

The US immigration department does not check or ever test for HIV.  I can vouch for this personnally as my wife and i just did this same thing ourselves.  smooth sailing and no problems with the US governement getting a foreigner a visa if either one of you are HIV positive.

Even if they do check during the exam for HIV I wouldn't worry. Medical conditions are protected under anti discrimination laws.
