Can a HIV positive apply for nursing college in Australia successfully?

Can a HIV positive apply for nursing college in Australia successfully?

Visa applicants are required to complete a HIV blood test, along with other medical examinations, if they are:

over 15 years of age;
applying for a permanent residency visa; and/or
intending to work (or study to become) a doctor, nurse, dentist, or paramedic in Australia.

The aboves are some rules that I Found on the Internet.

All the students who want to study nursing in Australia need to complete a HIV blood test.

If the result is positive (definitely will becasue I’m a HIV positive) , will they reject my appliance for the nursing college in Austrlia immediately?

I wanna ask whether HIV+ migrate to Australia as well

Answer

Hi, how are you doing?

With the rules that you have listed there are further conditions. Testing positive is not a block to being accepted.

What is then required is that your viral load is below a certain value and if not, you will not be doing high risk procedures which as a student is unlikely.

Migrating permanently is assessed by these same rules. Testing positive means you will be subject to a health assessment and a decision is made based on your own health and intention of residency.
