Tourists staying less than 3 months are not controlled, whether on entry nor during their stay.
Residence or work permit applicants need to undergo HIV-testing in order to receive their permits. Applicants for a permanent residence status, students over 16 and all foreigners intending to stay longer than one month and their spouses are required to present a negative HIV-test result. HIV/AIDS is not mentioned in the Entry and Residence Law (law no. 47, 1991). The immigration authorities refer to “current international practice”.
