HIV-specific entry and residence regulations for Ukraine

Ukraine has updated its Law on Prevention of AIDS and Social Protection of Population. Among other changes, restrictions on entry for HIV-positive people have been removed.

Author’s note:
  1. Ukrainian embassies and consulates may still have old visa application forms on their websites.
  2. We are receiving reports from people given wrong information when applying for long-term visa. According to specialised lawyers in Ukraine, normal visa rules apply to people living with HIV.

Global Criminalisation of HIV Transmission Scan

It also aims to provide an easily accessible ‘clearing-house’ of resources, research, and initiatives on the subject and to provide a platform for advocacy initiatives.
