SINGAPORE:  Delays verifying child vaccination certificates

Due to a high volume of applications, the Health Promotion Board in Singapore is experiencing a backlog in providing verification checks on certificates proving effective vaccination against Diphtheria and Measles.

Since February 2019, the Singapore Government has made it mandatory that this verification is received in order to file immigration for children of a foreign national, of twelve years old or younger.

It is understood that this affects Dependents Passes, Long Term Visit Passes and Student Pass applications and that the average processing time for these verifications is now around 25 days.

How does it affect the client?

Employers should consider this increased lead time for foreign nationals transferring with children and factor it in to their processes, starting earlier if possible.
