No prior approval is needed, but you will have to make an appointment with the clinic you plan to visit.
Need to get a COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test done?
Individuals can now do so at any of the 600 approved private clinics in Singapore, without needing prior approval from the Ministry of Health (MOH).
Those looking to get tested could include companies as well as people who require pre-departure testing before travel.
Prior to this, members of the public who were not unwell and did not need to meet specific testing requirements were unable to request to get tested for the coronavirus.
To request for the tests, you will have to make a prior appointment with the clinic that you plan to visit ahead of time. These tests, which costs $200, will not be subsidised and will be borne by those taking them.
MOH added they are looking to add more clinics and providers to the list.
Health Minister Gan Kim Yong had said on Nov 10 that the expanded testing availability is part of efforts to support a larger range of needs as Singapore begins to open up.
