April 2006
HIV/AIDS Policy & Law Review;Apr2006, Vol. 11 Issue 1, p50
The article reports that the Migration Review Tribunal (MRT) in Australia has overruled an executive decision that refuses the permanent residence to an HIV-positive man. It is previously required by the Australia's Migration regulations that applicants must be free from any disease or condition that might cost Australia an excessive health care and community services; else they will be given medical inadmissibility. However, the MRT, which concerns on the issue, ordered to grant a waiver to those who can prove financial stability and the capacity as well to take care of their expenses which would likely reduce the cost to the public.
