Long term visit passes

Postby Abhisaw » Thu, 08 May 2014 7:20 am

Hi every one!
Could any one please help me with the following?

If I am a P1 holder, can I bring my parents over on a long term visit pass?

What is the duration of the pass?
What are the health requirements for getting these passes?
Do they need to have a private visitor's health insurance while they stay?
When my parents are in Singapore, can they visit local GPs or hospitals?

Your feedback would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Do they need to have a private visitor's health insurance while they stay?
- Legally i do not think this is required, but for practical reasons, it is best if they are covered as the medical costs here (esp surgery and hospitalization and the new medicines) are prohibitive.
When my parents are in Singapore, can they visit local GPs or hospitals?
- they can visit public / private clinics and hospitals but as foreigners they will need to pay full price and if the public hospitals are at full capacity they may not be prioritized. But ER services is open to all depending on severity. ER services are chargeable.
