Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents or non-Student’s Pass international students who are protected by his/ her own insurance coverage in Singapore can opt-out from the scheme arranged by the Academy if the preceding condition holds. Student’s Pass holders are not allowed to opt-out of the insurance scheme.
