This brief front-and-back handout provides answers to frequently asked questions about HIV, immigration, and the HIV Ban. The HIV ban is no longer in effect as of January 4, 2010, and the handout helps individuals determine how the lifting of the ban will affect them. Specifically, it discusses what this means for current applicants, prospective applicants, and those seeking to visit the United States, and provides advice about next steps. It also provides contact information for further information.
The Center for HIV Law and Policy is a national resource and advocacy organization working to advance the rights of people affected by HIV. We combine an online HIV Policy Resource Bank, a creative national advocacy agenda, and case assistance focused on systems and institutions with significant impact on marginalized communities.
