The article deals with the decisions on cases related to people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) seeking resident visas in Australia. PLWHA generally do not meet the health criteria under the Migration Regulations 1994. A Federal Court decision over the rejection by the Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs of an application by a PLWHA was overturned. Judgment on the Robinson versus Minister for Immigration and Multicultural Affairs case was in favor of the applicant with Down's Syndrome.
