SE is right : you may be asked to do HIV and / or TB screening, but as SE says, generally from developed countries, and based on trend, they may subject or nobody or randomly, a few, for the medical test.Strong Eagle wrote:
You should have received a medical form with your IPA. It should specifically tell you if you need a medical or not.
Generally, citizens of developed/first world countries only have to fill out an affidavit, others must do the medical.
And south asian/south east asians are all put through medical, except for the P1/P2 .. and Q1, again, randomly.
Submission of the medical test is compulsory, if mentioned in the IPA, and no escape ..
Oh I remember the time, when MOM introduced HIV screening, in 2002 or so I think, and most of my colleagues, who had been frequent vistors to Thailand all went on panic mode, and almost all, if I remember correctly, quietly did their HIV screening in Malaysia, before doing the Singapore official screening ..
Me was just worried what will turn up the Chest X Ray, as I am a smoker ..
Those were the days ..
PS: if a westerner applies for S Pass, would they be subject to medical ? I know of atleast a couple of guys here on S Pass .. from UK !!
