About:China Embassy in Philippines

Is the new China Immigration law regarding the lifting of the travel ban for HIV foreigner has took effect? Does the application still need the declaration of HIV status upon application? Will it cause visa being denied? I am hoping for your quick reply on this matter.

Starting April 30, 2010, China lifts its entry ban according to state-run news agency Xinhua.

For 20 years the Chinese government banned foreigners with HIV and AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases and leprosy from entering the country. China is now lifting its entry ban according to state-run news agency Xinhua. "Restricting foreigners with these diseases from entering the country has played an extremely limited role in our country's disease prevention and control work, and instead has repeatedly become an impediment to our hosting a variety of international events," said a Chinese official.
