MOM / ICA Statutory Medical Examinations

  • Ministry of Manpower MOM
  • Immigration & Checkpoints Authority ICA

All ICA and MOM’s work pass or renewal pass applicants who have been granted the in-principle approval (IPA) will be informed and given a copy of the medical examination form which requires them to undergo a medical examination in Singapore.  You must send your workers for a medical examination by a Singapore-registered doctor within 2 weeks of their arrival in Singapore. Bring along the medical examination form when the worker goes for the tests.

This may include blood tests to check for;

  • HIV/syphilis/malaria parasite
  • Chest x-ray to check for Tuberculosis
  • Urine tests to check for pregnancy & sugar levels
  • Medical exam by a doctor to check if they are physically and mentally fit to work.

The worker must pass the examination, and you need the completed medical form to get the Work Permit issued. Those who fail the examination will have to be sent home.  You can send your workers for more tests if you have specific concerns about their health.

With the completed medical check up report, applicants can then submit the application to the Work Pass Division of MOM or Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) with the in-principle approval letter.  Applicants who are found to have infectious diseases will not be granted any work permit, employment pass, long-term social visit pass or permanent residence in Singapore.
