Immigration health check dilemma

Hi Dr.;

In continuation of the the thread above, i have not tested for HIV given your recommendations that i do not need testing despite multiple vaginal and oral encounters with CSW's.
I am not at a stage where i need to undergo mandatory medical screening for immigration purposes.
Scared as hell to go through with it. Testing positive here in the middle east would mean deportation. Do not pass go i mean.
Help suggestions!!

If your esposure did not include unprotected anal or vaginal sex, you should not worry about HIV testing if required by employment laws in the middle east (annual medical check up for instance) because your risk did not exist.

Only to lay your worries to rest permanently, you can get an HIV test done anytime whenever you are back to your home country on annual vacations.

* Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusively negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to action by MedHelp. Conclusively negative results or a no-risk situation will be based upon the criteria established by MedHelp’s doctors. Action will be taken as follows:
    * After excessive posting, a warning will be issued by MedHelp
    * Continuing to post regarding the negative result / no risk situation will result in a 3 day suspension
    * Continuing to post upon your return will result in a permanent ban.

my "exposures" have been insertive vaginal (always with a condom on) and insertive oral (without a condom) on multiple ocassions (>15) with multiple CSW's. no anal.
Never checked the condoms afterwards to make sure if it was leaking or not.
