New HIV Waiver Procedures for Non-Immigrant Visitors

Recently, the Department of State released revisions to Section 40.11 N14.3 of the Foreign Affairs Manual regarding procedures for Nonimmigrant Visa (NIV) HIV Waiver Authorization. DOS released a checklist for individuals applying for a Non Immigrant HIV Waiver. The checklist is used in DOS’ new streamlined NIV waiver process, which allows individuals to certify to the list of conditions for obtaining the waiver as opposed to having to bring independent evidence to the consulate.

We welcome the changes and hope that this will improve America’s Image in the world, encouraging more visitors to come.
