Being HIV+ and getting married
« on: January 24, 2020, 10:50:01 am »
Good morning everyone, my partner and I are planning to get married in July or August this year, I am Bolivian and my partner is from the United States, my question is whether I should declare to the embassy that I have the virus? I have been receiving treatment in the US by Withman Walker Clinic in Washigton DC, but I don't know if that stays confidential or at the time of getting married the State takes care of that information.

If you're not asked why would you disclose?

There is no requirement to disclose HIV status to marry in the USA.

Despite the recent debate about pregnancy and delivery tourism in the USA, US Embassy asks for no information regarding your status versus any type of visa you apply for.

Wishing you the all the best for your new life journey.

As far as I know in western countries things aren't disclosed when it comes to documents.
I don't live in the United States,but I haven't heard of such things being mentioned for marriage.
