EP medical examination

Postby abr » Thu, 09 Sep 2004 7:00 pm

Hi,
Does anybody have a definiteve answer on this? I have been asked to take a HIV and TB test according to my EP 'approval in principle' letter. I am yet to arrive in Sing.
It mentions teh test should be done from a 'registered medical practioner'. Does this mandate RMP in Singapore only or my home country would do?

thanks.

I had the same issue when i first got to SG on my EP two months ago. Dont worry, the medical exam is to make AFTER you arrive in Singapore. My employer, however, just told me that its ok not to do it, and everything is taken care of by them (I work for a big company with over 300 ppl based in their SG Asian branch...so for them it might be standard ways to handle it). Eventually, i did not do the medical exam at all.

Can I know what type of pass is yours..(p1/p2/q1/s)
Are you sure that there wont be any medical examination.
As far as I know MOM ensures medical tests to be done by a RMP in singapore.
