[quote=“Big Thumb”]the current rules vis the health exam is that it is no longer required by the CLA. The Council of Labor Affairs is now king of the hill. However, although it is not expressly required by the CLA, in the most recent ruling they leave the option of requiring a health exam to the person (buxiban) requesting approval of your application for an ARC.
In other words, it is up to the school you are applying to whether they want to put you through the grind of pooing in a cup and other endless probings and checkings.
I know that since last year or so work permits were supposed to be processed through CLA (applying the different requirements of the various Ministries). Can anyone confirm definitely that the health exam is now not required for MOE work permits? Anyone got direct personal experience or a link to the MOE ruling?
Sorry to be a sceptic but I recall that one of the reasons that ironlady (of blessed memory) decided to leave TW recently was because she was sick of this annual healthcheck requirement. Can we tell her to come back?
There just seems to be a big fuss on about visas and work permits recently. Everybody is talking about new rules in force but no one seems to have been subject to any new rules.
