[Very URGENT] Got my IPA letter. Questions about medical checkup.

Post by Dicardo » Thu, 24 Aug 2017 10:01 pm

I have renewed my EP (with HIV and x-ray checkup) during January.
From what I read in the IPA letter, I do not need to redo and submit the HIV/x-ray report again as long as I filled in the declaration form.

However (due to worry) I called ICA this evening to confirm about this. They told me I do not need to do HIV test, BUT will need x-ray report.

This is a big shock. I am pretty damn sure it is not written anywhere in the IPA letter, and I booked my IPA submission appointment on Next Monday.

SO what am I suppose to do now? Reschedule the appointment? How?
Or proceed to ICA on Monday to submit the documents like nothing (as the IPA letter already stated I do not need any medical report) ?

Why did you call in the first place? I thought IPA letter's instruction is quite straight forward.
