HIV Travel Information

If you are HIV positive travelling to another country is always a challenge knowing whether you need a visa, can you enter the country,  can you bring medication, can you get travel insurance and more.

A good resource is the Global Database on HIV Related Travel Restrictions website

The database purpose is as follows:
There are many countries around the world that restrict the entry, residence and stay of foreigners who are HIV positive. These countries perpetuate stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV by singling out HIV as a “dangerous disease”. This database lists country-by-county how each government of the world does or does not impose these outdated and discriminatory laws. While these restrictions are commonly referred to as “travel restrictions”, the effect these laws have on individuals and families is more serious than this term may imply. Please use this database to learn more.
The database gives a good starting point and highlights issues for both tourists and those seeking residency. For example both New Zealand and Australia have no restrictions on tourists. The US still has entry restrictions but these are currentlyunder review.
As always it pays to verify the information on the database – – and if you have any questions, good or bad experiences contact us.
