Hepa B for work permit

Post by toinkz » Thu, 01 Oct 2009 10:55 pm


I am being offered a job there at singapore, and things are already being fix. They will applying for a work permit for me, the only problem is I am a Hepa B carrier, though the lab and doctor diagnosis tells that I have a very low viral level (HBV DNA)and I have antibody indicator that tells that I am not contagious therefore not posing a threat to spread the virus to others. I will be working on an engineering company.

Do you think it will hinder me from getting my work permit?

What are the medical test necessary to get a working permit?

please help and advise me on this matter. I tried also to read some post and there are some conflicting answer. Please enlighten me more .

if you can't find an answer from the recent hep B posts, you might have to take your chance with the process.

perhaps it would be a smart move to include pertinent reports indicating your level of risk/contagion.

if you would like to know more about what is required for a work permit, perhaps you should approach "they" whom are applying the permit for you.

OR you can visit the singapore immigration (?) or ministry of manpower website... ... ermit.html

which you've obviously not bothered to google for, as you were busy replying 'yes' to old old threads.
