What is FOMEMA?
FOMEMA, or the Foreign Workers’ Medical Examination Monitoring Agency, is a Malaysian government agency responsible for monitoring and regulating the health screenings of foreign workers in the country. All foreign workers in Malaysia are required to undergo a medical examination and obtain a clean bill of health before they can be issued a work permit/visa.
The Malaysian government has designated FOMEMA as an organization to support the Ministry of Health in monitoring and overseeing compulsory health screenings and checking their medical report for all authorized foreign workers in Peninsular Malaysia and the Federal Territory of Labuan.
The key aim of the program is to safeguard the health of Malaysian citizens by minimizing the likelihood of infectious diseases spreading from foreign workers and reducing the pressure on public health facilities by treating foreign workers with uncontrolled chronic illnesses.
