Doors Opened for Immigrants With HIV


As of Jan. 4, 2010, foreign nationals can no longer be barred from entry to the United States solely because they are infected with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (“HIV”) pursuant to a ruling by the Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”).

Section 212(a)(1)(A)(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act still bars the admission to the United States of foreign nationals diagnosed with specific illnesses, but HIV is no longer among them.
