Is it possible to get an abortion in Singapore as a foreign national?

Doctor's Answers (1)

Sorry to hear about your situation. Foreign nationals are not allowed to get abortions in Singapore. As a non-Singaporean, you can only get an abortion if:   

  • You have PR status or you’re married to a Singaporean citizen
  • You have been residing in Singapore for more than 4 months 

Do note that worldwide, after 24 weeks of pregnancy, you can generally only get an abortion if your life is at risk, or your foetus has a severe abnormality.
