What is this 14-day COVID-19 cover?
With effect from 1 January 2021, all Long Term Pass Holders (Including Foreign Domestic Workers) returning to or entering Singapore are responsible for their inpatient medical bills, should they develop any onset of COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days of their arrival in or return to Singapore.
This 14-day COVID-19 cover is designed to fill the gap if your domestic helper is diagnosed with COVID-19 during the first 14 days upon her arrival or return to Singapore.
If your domestic helper is diagnosed with COVID-19, within 14 days upon her arrival or return to Singapore, we will only pay the hospital and surgical expenses listed in section 7(b)1 to 7(b)4 incurred for her COVID-19 treatment, up to $30,000 per incident.
Your domestic helper must stay in a restructured hospital or community care facilities as directed by Singapore’s Ministry of Health. We will not cover stays in private hospitals and any mandatory COVID-19 diagnostic tests that he/she is required to take for entry into/exit from Singapore, including pre-departure tests and post-arrival tests.
For avoidance of doubt, we will only pay for COVID-19 diagnosed within 14 days of arrival in or return to Singapore as described above.
This cover is subject to the policy terms and conditions.

Do note that cover will only start from 1 January 2021 in alignment with the government’s policy, regardless of when you have made payment and will last for the remainder of your existing policy.
