What is the Human Organ Transplant Act ?
The Human Organ Transplant Act (HOTA) allows for the kidneys, heart, liver and corneas to be removed, for transplantation, in the event of death from any cause.
HOTA covers all Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents 21 years old and above, who do not have mental disorders unless they have opted out.
There are 2 ways you can donate your organs:
1 Human Organ Transplant Act
2 Medical (Therapy, Education and Research) Act (MTERA)
How do I opt out of HOTA?
Complete the HOTA Opt Out Form and send it to the National Organ Transplant Unit.
How do I opt back into HOTA if I opted out before?
Complete the Withdrawal of Objection Form and send it to the National Organ Transplant Unit. Do note that you will not receive priority should you require an organ transplant.
