Get a quantiferon test to support, to show you don’t have latent TB

I had been studying in Singapore for almost 3 years and i got a job offer here. My s-pass application was approved by MOM, then i went for medical check-up and found out that i have active TB. I got the letter of undergoing TB treatment from government hospital in order to submit to MOM, they may accept my application ( i have undergone 1 month treatment already). However, the company didnt want to hire me so they withdrew my s-pass application.

Then i went to MOM to ask if the company submits my s-pass application together with the letter of undergoing treatment, will MOM grant me the pass. the customer service told me that they will reject me, as i need to be fully cured.

Now another company offers me a job. So if the second company accepts my condition, will MOM approve my S-pass application, providing the letter that i am undergoing TB treatment? I am so confused, Doctors said that i am allowed to work with the letter, but the customer service in MOM told me i will be rejected.

Anyone know please advice me

Thanks so much.
May I know what happened to you?

Hello,

I got a job offer to work in Singapore but had in the past tuberculosis and it is slightly visible on the X Ray.

Will my EP application be rejected by MOM even if I'm declared by physicians with relevant supporting documents to be cleared from old TB?

Is it for sure rejected or I still have some chance to be accepted ?

Many thanks

Regards

If i had a old scar, shall i get a fit report

Yes, it would be a good idea. And yes, you will also have to be check again by Singapore Doctors as well. But it one of those things one has to do if one wants to work here.

That is why they will check. If you tell them about it. They may request you get a check or may allow you to come anyway. But if you come and they find out you didn't report it and tried to hide it?...........

I assume you have been treated for the past active TB?

If so, ask for an IGRA assay for latent TB. Negative results would show you do not carry TB and are not a risk to the general population (in terms of TB anyway).

Note - if you haven’t been treated for TB, then the IGRA test may be positive, showing you still carry TB.
