Pre-employment medical examination for FDW

You need to send your foreign domestic worker (FDW) for a medical examination before her Work Permit is issued. Find out the requirements for the check-up.

Most clinics would have resumed medical examinations. To avoid a long wait at the clinic and ensure your FDW’s safety, please make an appointment with the clinic before sending her there.

You will need to upload the completed medical examination form to get her Work Permit issued. 

For Work Permits issued earlier on without the medical examination forms, please send the FDWs for their medical examinations. Once they have completed it, you can proceed to make an appointment for card registration.

You must send your helper for a medical examination by a Singapore-registered doctor within 2 weeks of her arrival in Singapore. Bring along the medical examination form when she goes for the tests.

Her Work Permit will only be issued if she passes the medical examination. Otherwise, she will have to be sent home.

The medical examination screens the helper for 4 types of infectious disease (tuberculosis, HIV, syphilis and malaria) and checks if she is fit to work.

You can send her for more tests if you have specific concerns about her health.

If you want to know the results of the medical examination, you can ask the doctor for a copy of the report.

For transfer FDWs, you need to send your worker for the six-monthly medical examination, if it is due.
