It means you have an active virus in your blood. Most likely 4,777 copies in ml of blood..  Treatment is advised in this situation..

First of all, do not get very upset, and remember that HBV is a common disease, more than 350 million people worldwide have it. Almost 1 in every 20 is a chronic carrier. You and i did not chose to get it, but we have it now, just remember that it is not the end of the world.
The most important thing is to remember is NOT that you cannot get a job abroad, but that the disease can be dangerous and even life threatening. Thankfully, there are medicines available that can control or reduce damage that HBV can cause. But they are not prescribed/beneficial for everyone. You have to learn about the disease. This forum, or many good websites or a talk with a good doctor can help you get a good understanding. The absolutely important thing is that you should get a good hepatologist, with a real good reputation. Get yourself checked through blood tests, ultrasound and fibroscan. Only when you are sure your liver is ok, then just keep monitoring yourself regularly as per your doc's advice. Good luck.
