Anybody have any experience or wisdom with UK Medical Exam, and issue of HIV (female with almost non-existant viral load) and/or history of surgery and/or HIV-related medications and/or other things that someone feels like they can't afford to be truthful about on the medical history for the exam?

They do blood tests... don't think you can lie on a blood test. If you lied on the papers and it popped out on the test thats a big issue.

NEVER lie.

They don't test for HIV any more. You must disclose it, however. You are asked about your medical history and it's considered part of the visa/ immigration process. To lie would be insanity. It will be uncovered and would be considered misrepresentation.

It used to be that HIV positive people were not allowed to enter the US at all. Obama changed that when he argued that the US could not be leaders in HIV and AIDS research, if keynote speakers and respected researchers were potentially banned from entering the country for a conference because of the law.

They may be concerned about medical insurance and adequate financial support being available, however.

I would take all medical records relating to her infection and a letter from her GP/ Specialist confirming her present condition, attitude towards treatment, etc. It might also help to send her a notarized document confirming that you are aware of her HIV positive status, have looked into medical insurance/ coverage, discussed prevention of transmitting the infection, and anything else that will reassure decision-makers that you, as the US citizen, are not being mislead or put at unknowing risk.

Remember, the main purpose behind this visa process is to protect the United States and her people.
