The countries previously declared as endemic zones are considered by the Singapore authorities to be still infected.

Additional risks

Hepatitis A and E are common and hepatitis B is present.

Rabies still occurs. For anyone at high risk, vaccination before arrival is recommended. If you are bitten, seek medical assistance immediately.

For applicants for permanent resident status and for employers who get less than S$1,250 a month, HIV testing is required. Foreign test results are not accepted.

For further details, consult the Health appendix.

Health care

Singapore General Hospital receives emergency patients and health care is excellent. There is an extensive private sector. Health insurance is recommended, as there is no reciprocal health agreement plan with the UK.
