MOM defers medical exams for migrant domestic workers

Employers who received notices have until 30 April to have their workers seen.

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) will defer the six-monthly medical examination for migrant domestic workers and other female work permit holders to ease the workload faced by healthcare providers.

Employers who received notices dated January and February 2022 for their workers but have not sent them for examination will now have until 30 April 2022 to do so. Employers whose workers are due to receive their notices in March and April 2022 will be notified of the new date by post and e-mail from the end-April instead.

Should employers need to send their workers to the clinics for a medical examination at this time, they will not be turned away. However, the MOM strongly encourages employers to defer the visit unless there is a need for medical attention.
