Will Spouse visa get denied for Herpes PLEASE HELP

41 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the best answers to the following. PLEASE HELP! My wife will soon be getting her Visa interview appointment date to be able to come to the USA. She has genital herpes and I need to know the best answer to these questions

1.) On the Medical exam questionnaire it asks if you have any STD's. If she marks NO and is not having any flareups or visible sores during the medical exam, will they still find it through the blood test and deny her Visa because she marked NO. If they do find it can she claim she didn't even know she had it as it is a fact that 50% of people with Herpes don't even know they have it.

2.) If she marks YES to the STD question and states she has genital herpes will she fail the medical exam and/or be denied the visa? We are both suffering tremendous stress about this after enduring 9 months of waiting to get through the process, her appointment date will be given any day now and it will destroy our lives if she does not get approved. We have been married for 2.5 years now.

If anyone reads this post and has an accurate answer, I beg of you to please take a moment and reply. Thank you.

Suppose she marks 'NO', her herpes get detected in her blood test, and she gets denied.

It is always best to tell the truth. Chances are that she is on medication to control breakouts and all she needs to do it disclose that to the examining physician.

Check out this link from the CDC: http://www.cdc.gov/immigrantrefugeehealth/exams/medical-examination-faqs.html

What are the communicable diseases of public health significance that would cause an applicant to fail a medical examination or be inadmissible? Communicable diseases of public health significance include—

  • Tuberculosis
  • Syphilis
  • Chancroid
  • Gonorrhea
  • Granuloma Inguinale
  • Lymphogranuloma Venereum
  • Hansen's Disease (Leprosy)

And the following two disease categories--

  • Quarantinable diseases designated by any Presidential Executive Order. Current diseases include: cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, yellow fever, viral hemorrhagic fevers, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and influenza caused by novel or re-emergent influenza (pandemic flu).
  • Events that are reportable as a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC) to the World Health Organization (WHO) under the International Health Regulations (IHR) of 2005 (currently polio, smallpox, SARS, influenza, and other public health emergencies of international concern.)

Good luck.

So the most important part of my question remains unanswered. Will my wife get denied for having genital Herpes? Lets assume she answers YES on the medical form question "Do you have any STD's" and lists genital herpes. Are they going to deny her Visa based on that answer? If anyone has any first hand experience with this or knows of any confirmed examples where someone had it, stated it on the form, and was either granted the visa anyway or denied the visa based on it, please please please reply. Thank you for you time and knowledge.

Gegel, already answered your question. Only those that are listed can be inadmissible -if she's under treatment she should be fine, but don't lie. Is better to tell the truth and receive some kind of a "waiting period" Than the Embassy finding out and be banned from the US for life.

Regardless of whether she's having a flare-up or not, and on medication for it or not, the plain fact is genital herpes is detectable with a blood test so she shouldn't lie as it will show up during the medical. She won't be denied a visa for having herpes, but she will be denied for lying which results in a misrepresentation. Just tell her to tell the truth - all will be fine in that respect.

Best of luck to you both!

SHE WONT BE DENIED!!!

Now you don't even have to get tested for AIDS when immigrating to the US anymore, so there's no possible way you should get denied for having Herpes!

Mark YES to having an STD and move on!!!
