Travelling to Singapore with meds
« on: August 17, 2014, 08:30:50 PM »

A friend of mine is travelling to Singapore.

Does anyone know if there has been a change to HIV travel restrictions for Singapore?

Can anyone offer advice for someone travelling with meds to Singapore?

Cheers

Check this link out:

http://www.hivtravel.org/Default.aspx?PageId=143&CountryId=158

Text states that HIV or AIDS people can't enter country, but no "test" is required for fewer than a 30 day stay.  However, if you friend has meds that are clearly identified for HIV usage, it sounds like there could be a risk of detection (no pun intended) by entry personnel.  Your friend should probably call U.S. State Department to get official info.

Customs in Singapore almost never check any bags, much less going through your meds.

Just put what you need for the trip in an a vitamin bottle and you'll be fine.

HIV+ people travel in and out of Singapore every single hour of every single day with no issues, so don't get stressed about it.
