HIV and Immigration




This information has been developed to support clinicians treating patients with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) who are applying for an Australian permanent residence (PR) visa. The provision of a ‘positive’ medical report in support of a patient’s PR visa application can help to support a favourable outcome for the applicant.

It is recommended that the applicant seeks advice from an appropriate migration agent/lawyer. Clinicians are recommended to make use of this provided information in conjunction with the advice of the applicant’s migration agents/lawyers, who will be able to advise in regards to the application or health waiver.
