Entry restrictions generally affect people who want to stay in a country for a long period of time. Depending on the duration of the stay, a negative HIV test result must be presented to authorities for approval of the stay. HIV-positive test results generally lead to refusal of entry or to being forced to leave if one is already in the country. Such regulations limit PLHIV in the selection of educational opportunities and places of work. This discrimination cannot be accepted, particularly in view of the change in status of HIV from a fatal to a treatable chronic disease, since PLHIV – just like any other citizens today – need to plan their education and pursue a profession. PLHIV are at constant risk of losing what they have built up: their job, their financial basis, access to health care, their home, their friends and family, and even their life. In this regard, some countries in Asia and the Middle East set particularly poor examples. We have anecdotal reports of people dying in deportation confinement, denied access to treatment while waiting to return to their homeland. This usually affects migrants who have been confined for deportation when their HIV status is discovered. The excuse of ‘legal problems’ between the authorities is often given. Authorities can even make it harder for their own citizens to return home if it becomes known that they are infected with HIV or have AIDS.
