I went to Renai hospital to get a health check as my ARC is set to expire soon so I need to renew it along with my work contract and work permit.
However, the hospital said they weren’t doing them at the moment due to pandemic and I really need to get one done to renew my ARC. Does anyone have any idea what I should do?
I was thinking maybe a private hospital might do it, but not sure if there is a list available of hospitals currently offering it. Wondering if anyone here might have heard of such a thing / if its even possible at the moment.
I’m in the same situation. My ARC expires on the 2nd of July. I don’t qualify for the current 30 day extension and it is not possible to get a health check as Hospitals are not currently able to perform them.
I went to the Immigration department and as told just to wait. I will go again on Thursday who’s is the only day I have any time off work.
With the work permit, my boss was able to get a valid work permit without the health check. I don’t know how.
I would like some clarity but it’s not possible at the moment as is typical of governments around the world. So I just sit in limbo.
this is 100% agree with. The fact that the hospitals and the government haven’t coordinated anything is an absolute joke. I know a guy who went to a hospital doing health checks the other day he said if he doesn’t have covid yet, he will now, because the hospital was an absolutely mug fest. People pilled on top of each other doing health checks.
