Is it possible to get an abortion in Singapore as a foreign national?Gynaecology Singapore Healthcare
I am 24 weeks pregnant. I live in Doha, Qatar, but would like to come to Singapore for an abortion as it is illegal to get one in Qatar.
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.
