HIV positive nurse Philippines for US

  1. Can a nurse who is HIV positive be granted immigrant visa to work as a nurse in USA? What  Should a nurse do to be able to be granted visa? If he is in medication , what shall he do? Can the employer cancel the employment to the extent of denial of the visa if the nurse is found to be HIV positive?

    An HIV test, in addition to a TB test WERE part of the healthcare screening requirements prior to approval of an immigrant visa. However, the president lifted the ban preventing HIV+ individuals from entering as immigrants to the US in January 2010.
