Foreign visitors will have to pay if they are treated for COVID-19 at Singapore’s public hospitals to “prioritise” resources given an expected rise in cases, the Ministry of Health said in its daily update on the coronavirus situation in the country.

The decision came into effect on March 7. 

Testing of foreign visitors – people on short-term visit passes – will still be free, while residents and those on long-term passes will continue to receive free testing and treatment at government facilities, it said.
