First is the highly skilled foreign talent and the other, low-skilled foreign worker who would do the dirty and risky jobs. It should be noted that at this era, a lot of people from third world countries would seek opportunities abroad for better living. With the increased outflow of foreign workers in Singapore throughout the years, the Singaporean government, together with local clinics should help in ensuring that all foreign workers are free from any diseases that can spread in Singapore.
This is a checklist for present and historical medical information. For the latter, diseases like mental illness, epilepsy, tuberculosis, chronic asthma, hypertension and the likes are asked.
For the present medical condition, cardiovascular and respiratory systems are checked, mental state, chest x-ray, blood and HIV diseases are checked. (Please see MOM website to get full details on the medical examination for foreign workers in Singapore).
It should be noted that Singapore would require certain duration from the time of application/arrival in the country. It is best to consult a clinic/a physician that is aware of the requirements of MOM to avoid further complication of the application/completion process. It should also be noted that one should only go to authorized and legitimate clinics for medical check-up to ensure that accuracy of the results. Lying about your medical conditions has consequences both from the Singaporean government and from yourself, as one would not be able to detect any early symptoms of diseases and to cure it as soon as possible.
Some of other medical requirements such as renewal of driver’s license, pre-employment requirements are also offered in clinics together with foreign worker’s medical check-up.
