End of HIV travel ban 'imminent'

It has been reported that the Obama administration plans to announce that HIV-positive foreign nationals will be no longer be banned from entering the United States.

A spokesman from Immigration Equality has stated that the lifting of the ban has cleared the Department of Health & Human Services, and that an announcement from the White House Office of Management & Budget is “imminent”.

“Our expectation is the publication will happen very soon, and following a potential short window between publication and implementation, the HIV travel and immigration ban will be a thing of the past.” - Steve Ralls, Immigration Equality
