Healthcare

You may keep your existing policy (if it is still valid in Singapore) or buy private health insurance in Singapore. Some companies cover their employees under a group health insurance.

If you're bringing your children to Singapore, they will need to be immunised against diphtheria, Hepatitis B, measles, mumps, pertussis (whooping cough), poliomyelitis, rubella, tetanus and tuberculosis. These immunisations need to be done before your children are allowed to register for Primary 1 in Singapore schools.

Some general practitioners operate 24-hour clinics at neighbourhood estates, but may require you to call ahead. If it's an emergency, you may go to any hospital's Accident and Emergency (A&E) unit. Make sure you bring an acceptable form of identification. To call for an ambulance for emergency situations, dial 995.
