SEROLOGY TEST (Antibodies COVID); Is this now a requirement?

Post by musical box » Sun, 24 Jul 2022 12:46 pm

MOH email to me:

We also wish to inform you that all individuals who have been fully vaccinated overseas with any vaccines approved under the WHO Emergency Use Listing (EUL) will have to get their overseas vaccination records ingested into the National Immunisation Registry (NIR). This includes Singaporean Citizens (SC), Singapore Permanent Residents (PR), Long-Term Pass Holder (LTPH) (e.g. Long-Term Visitor Pass, Work Permit, Employment Pass, S Pass, Dependent Pass, Student Pass) and Short-Term Pass Holders (STPH). For STPHs, this would only be relevant to those who intend to stay in Singapore for more than 30 days.

You may call ahead to any clinic to take a serology test. The full cost of the service will be borne by the individual.

After arriving in Singapore, you will need to visit a healthcare provider who will do the following:

1. Review your overseas vaccination documentation - either the original hard copy vaccination certificate or digital vaccination certificate (with translated document where applicable).

2. Perform a serology test. If you have a digitally verifiable vaccination certificate, you may not need to take a serology test. Instead, the healthcare provider will scan your certificate to verify its authenticity. (refer here for the list of acceptable digital vaccination certificates).

3. Update your overseas COVID-19 vaccination record(s) to NIR as long as you have overseas COVID-19 vaccination documentation, and whose serology test result is positive or whose vaccination certificate has been digitally verified.

4. You will see your vaccinations status on TraceTogether or HealthHub app within 24 hours after clinic has notified NIR of their overseas COVID-19 vaccination records.

Upon ingestion of your overseas vaccination records, we will then be able to advise you further and if you still face issues with your TraceTogether, you may raise a ticket through this link:
