Tuberculosis clause in Dependent pass

Post by Gladiator » Sun, 26 Jun 2011 4:40 pm

Hi friends!!! Need some urgent help PLEASE!

My wife was detected with tuberculosis (non-contagious) in 2009. Ssometime back , there was a surgery done to remove her TB. Now she is absolutely fine. Would there be any problem in approval of her dependent pass.? Wud she be required to go thru medical test?

Appreciate an early response

Thanks

Medical test is compulsory with chest x ray! Do declare that she has had it, and her clearance date. There should be no problem for the DP

Thanks ksl for your reply, truly appreciate. Do share if u have any other info since you specifically said "do declare"..... Are their repercussions of not declaring?

I'm under the impression that TB does show on the X-ray, I'm not sure about the DP forms, if the question is asked about TB. If it is not asked, then you have no need to declare.

If asked about any serious illness, then yes you should mention it and also mention the date your spouse was cleared safe. Many people have it so it's no big deal providing the all clear is given.

My main issue in Singapore is that if you lie, you will be may be found out and will probably be punished, deported and banned for life.

TB is a serious problem for others too, so don't be foolish and risk others lives, the checks will show if she is safe or not.

But scar tissue will be visible http://doctor.ndtv.com/faq/ndtv/fid/113 ... -ray-.html

You can also try doing a search on TB and see what comes up, I know others have had the same questions on the forum.

Here's one thread there are more http://forum.singaporeexpats.com/ftopic71582.html
