just received my medical check ...

Moving to Singapore? Ask our regular expats in Singapore questions on relocation and their experience here. Ask about banking, employment pass, insurance, visa, work permit, citizenship or immigration issues.

Whether or not they will allow you to come back in as a tourist is something I cannot say for sure. I do know the databases have the capabilities but whether they are set up to flag known carriers for HIV or not I do not know. They can set queries up for most anything but whether or not they regularly check for tourists who have applied for EP's or not I don't know. I guess there you may just have to play it by ear. Sorry, but I don't have any anecdotal evidence, just the possible scenarios that could happen. Like being refused entry and having to catch the next flight out. I really don't know.

Sorry to say, but you'll never work in Singapore again, at least with your current identity and the country's current laws.

For social visits, I couldn't find any hard info, aside from some old news stories from 2000 about HIV-positive people already in Singapore on social visit passes being deported once their visa ended. Probably the best thing to do is just call ICA and ask point-blank -- you're already 100% definitely busted, so it's not going to make things any worse. Doesn't look good though...

I don't think there are too many, if any, other HIV positive people on this site. Matter of fact, you may be the first, so I doubt that there will be any "first hand" knowledge. I'd say you are frankly out of luck.

A bit personal, don't you think?
