Some diseases can prevent you from getting a green card: a list and ways to solve the problem
Some medical conditions may prevent you from getting a green card. Which diagnoses can affect the decision, and what are the exceptions, reports DailyNews.
If you are traveling on a temporary work visa, you do not need to have a medical examination at the interview. If you are traveling on an immigrant visa, you must undergo a medical examination. The list of diseases that prevent you from obtaining a visa includes only those diseases that the US Department of Health and Human Services defines as infectious diseases of public health importance.

The HHS list includes mild chancroid, gonorrhea, granuloma inguinal, infectious leprosy, lymphogranuloma venereum, infectious syphilis, and active tuberculosis. Please note that HIV-positive people are no longer on the list.
Applicants for permanent residence must undergo a medical examination to show that they do not have an HHS-listed disease. Applicants who have these medical conditions may qualify for an ineligibility waiver. To be eligible for a green card, an applicant must be the spouse, parent or unmarried son or daughter of a permanent resident or U.S. citizen, or the parent of a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, or a person who has been issued an immigrant visa by a consul abroad.
