  • EMGS reserves the right to request a repeat test should there be any doubt in the findings of the initial medical report.

  • If a student fails the medical examination no refund will be given. 
  • Students are allowed to appeal and redo the test should they fail, but additional cost will be incurred and be borne by the student.

Please bring along the documents below for the post arrival health screening and proceed to the International Student Support for further information.


Students are advised to avoid taking medications containing opioids from  1 month prior to departure . Kindly ask your treating doctors to give alternative medicine which does not contain opioid or issue a medical letter if u have to be treated with only opioid containing medicines due to medical reasons. It is important for you to remember the name of the medication you were taking prior to departure and declare it correctly in your medical forms during the post-arrival medical screening. Any student with positive urine opioid test will fail the medical examination.

Students with medical conditions, please check our Guidelines for Certification for Foreign Students.

Students who are tested positive for illegal drugs or are undergoing dialysis treatment will also be refused entry.
