LTSVP Medical Check-up Requirements

Post by ElvisBacon » Tue, 01 Jul 2008 4:47 pm

Hello all.

I'm moving to Singapore this July.

I have already been granted an Employement Pass Eligibility Certificate, and have been approved a Long Term Social Visit Pass.

Application for the LTSVP asks for a recent medical check-up.

Does anyone know what exactly is required?
e.g. HIV, X-Ray, Ultasound, hepatitis....

Thanks in advance

SOLUTION:

You need:
- X-Ray (for TB)
- HIV test
- General Health Check-up

it's a very simple exam process, that involves a 3 minute exam from a doctor, a blood test, and a chest x-ray.

what you need to do is:
- download the medical exam form from the ICA website.
- take that form along with your passport and ECEP to most any medical clinic (you often find one in a HDB development block). give them the medical form to complete.
- get examined by the doc, give a blood sample
- go to an x-ray clinic (the med clinic will usually be partnered with one, so follow their direction).

then a couple days later you can then pick-up the completed medical form. Take this with you to the ICA when you apply for the LTSV. I can't remember if you have to make an appointment ahead of time... check the website.

in all, the exam should cost around S$80, if i remember correctly.

hope this helps.

Mike, much appreciated.

My company pays for all things medical here in Japan, so i will get checked up before I arrive and see if that's acceptable.

Got mine done for PR a couple of weeks ago at Raffles Hospital at Bugis. Blood test and X-ray done at same place and no booking needed. I went on a Friday afternoon and results back the following Tuesday, only cost $40!

I'd go with what Saint said. I recently did the LTSVP medical check at Raffles Hospital. They have a fast and efficient service that just does medical checks. No appointment necessary. Just walk in and you'll get the results back in 2 or 3 days. It was the swiftest medical check I've ever done in Asia.

i suggest you go to Novena Medical Center #09-01, to do a medical check up. the medical center is very new and nice.
last time i ever listened the doctor's pulic forum. he is very nice and handsome. i know their clinic does cancer screening, they should do medical check up as well?

Thanks for all the replies, it really helps for clearing things up.

But i find another medical reports that's slightly different on the hep b test with the above one from ElvisBacon.

See http://www.mom.gov.sg/publish/etc/media ... _FW_WP.pdf.

It says hep b test is advisable, what usually employers do about this advice?

Thanks,

Hi Elvis...
Just to share my exprience of medical examination.
When i got mine was nearly 6 months back,i went to a private neighbourhood clinic near the house of my inlaws and the doctor recomended me to go to a clinic nearby which does the X-ray and they only make a chest X -ray and a check for TB.thats all needed for LTSVP and it was stated by the ICA that if you have already done a medical checkup in the last 2 years for EP than no need for this new one.
all you need is a Chest X-ray and TB test.they mail to your medical doctor any licensed one can do, just go to any clinic.PM me if you need the address and it wont cost much,from what i remember is in total 30 S$.and you have the results with you within 2 days normally and the most is 3rd day.this is from my experience and hope this info is useful to you.
Best Luck.

Sorry i forgot something to mention...
the HIV test is done at any clinic and mine was done by the doctor who recomended me where to get the X-Ray chest screen.
A HIV test any licensed doctor can do and a X-Ray chest screen in certain clinics the doctors recomend.
GOD bless
