COVID-19 PCR Swab Tests in Singapore

In Singapore, it is compulsory for some individuals to undergo a COVID-19 PCR swab test, such as those working in high-risk sectors, travellers, and individuals going on a cruise. You can also order a swab test voluntarily to give you greater peace of mind.

There are various types of tests used to detect the presence of COVID-19 in Singapore. Antigen Rapid Test (ART) and Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) can be used to diagnose COVID-19. ART is quicker and more scalable, but PCR is usually more accurate.

Homage is a Ministry of Health (MOH) approved offsite vendor for home-based PCR tests. You can book a home swab test as soon as 3-5 hours after a form is submitted.

My mum’s helper was hospitalised suddenly and I needed urgent help to take care of my mum who has advanced dementia. Homage was able able to find caregivers for my mum within a very short notice.

Homage CP render their professional service to my dad who is a dialysis patient. CP assigned to wheel my dad to & fro from Dialysis Center within 300m walking distance. They are capable to load & unload my dad from wheelchair independently. They are friendly too. I'm looking forward to their next visit.

Doctor is qualified, friendly

Had a good experience with Homage's teleconsultation. The doctor is qualified, friendly and guided me on examination. She also explained my symptoms to me in detail, which is useful. The report provided has detailed information, and medicine was delivered to me on the same day even though my appointment was in the evening.
