I hear expat teachers who are HIV positive are being deported. How true is this? Is its an employment policy or the China Government policy? if so, what happens to healthy HIV positive teachers?

Hi Bongani, any answers in this? Is this in China?

As I understand it, it’s not dependent on a current state of health, but part of their STD and infectious diseases policy and a clean bill of health is part of the visa process requirements.

Yeah, he is right. You can be expelled for even a minor STI like the clap or syphilis. If you get sick and you suspect an STI buy medicine in a pharmacy and get check outside of the country if possible.

Hi in responce to you're email, I have HIV but it has never been an issue, for the most part I'm perfectly healthy. I was actually diagnosed with HIV whilst working in China although my first contract out there it wasn't a problem, however my 2nd contract things with the Chinese authorities were very different, I wasn't so much deported, my work visa was rejected. To cut a long story short my landlord was told via my local police station in Shanghai that I had to register with, that someone with a highly contagious disease is residing in the apartment block, so I had to move out, honestly you couldn't make this shit up. A week later my work permit was rejected and I had 10 days to leave the county. I kind of count it as a blessing, I've worked in far better countries since then, my last country Japan who are not so primitive in their thinking and have given me a 5 year work visa. Little wonder there is a massive teacher shortage in China, the country is clearly going backwards in more ways than one
