Singapore Visa Requirements for Medical Tourists

For most Westerners traveling to Singapore a visa is not required.  British and Irish visitors receive a 30-day stamp upon arrival, but must show proof of an onward ticket.  

Foreigners seeking medical treatment in Singapore may apply for an extension via the online “e-EXTEND” program.  This allows a one-time only extension for up to 89 days from the date of entry, and applies only to those who haven’t previously obtained an extension of stay on their current trip.  In order to obtain the extension, your Visit Pass must have a remaining validity of not less than 2 days, excluding Sundays and public holiday, and you may not return to Singapore within 5 days of the departure date of your current trip.

As for ASEAN visitors, Singapore provides free entry to the citizens of those countries, and, certain restrictions apply to visitors from a handful of Middle Eastern countries who may require a local sponsor, which would likely be provided by their doctor there.
