There are four main actions mentioned in the IPA letter:
- Medical Check Up
- Purchase of Insurance
- Prepare Supporting Documents for Verification
- Book Appointment with ICA
Medical Check Up
You may visit ATA Medical Clinic (Tanjong Pagar) for your one-stop permanent resident medical checkup. ATA Medical Clinic (Tanjong Pagar) is a one-stop medical clinic with Chest X-Ray, Mammogram and Ultrasound facilities. We are able to provide your permanent resident medical report within 48 hours. Applicants who require a same-day report may also top up for a fee of $30. Alternatively, you may also visit other medical practitioners who offer this service too.
Purchase of Insurance
You must be insured under MediShield Life. If you are above 30, you are also required to be insured under CareShield Life.
What is MediShield Life?
MediShield Life is a basic health insurance scheme that provides Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents with universal and lifelong protection against large healthcare bills, regardless of age or health condition.
What is CareShield Life?
CareShield Life is a long-term care insurance which provides financial protection against long-term care costs of Singaporeans and Permanent Residents in the event of severe disability.
Prepare Supporting Documents for Verification
You will find a checklist of documents that ICA requires for verification in the IPA
You can expect the documents listed to be the ones you originally submitted during your Singapore PR application.
Ensure you gather these documents correctly before your in-person appointment with an ICA officer.
Book Appointment with ICA
Upon receiving the medical report (or medical certificate), insurance documents and
preparing all other mandatory documents listed in the IPA letter, you may proceed to
book an in-person appointment with ICA.
The ICA officer will verify your documents during the appointment. This verification process takes about an hour.
What Happens After the Verification Process?
After the completion of the verification process, you will receive the following:
- A temporary identity receipt
- A collection slip for your Singapore Identity Card
- An Entry Permit
- A Re-Entry Permit (REP)
- The Singapore History brochure
These will be given on the same day. You must make another ICA appointment to collect your official Identity Card.
