London Euro-MP launches campaign to end US travel ban
Posted on: April 5 2008, 08:37 am

London Liberal Democrat MEP Baroness Sarah Ludford has launched an online campaign to end the US policy of virtually refusing travel visas to people with HIV, a policy that has no public health rationale.

The EU is set to negotiate with the United States the extension of US visa waiver (visa-free travel) to the citizens of all EU countries, instead of just some.  But since 1993 the US government has denied visa waiver to people with HIV and made the obtaining of any visa very difficult and laden with conditions.
