International SOS’ presence in Asia includes: Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Philippines, Sakhalin, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.


  • International SOS chartered the first evacuation flights between mainland China and Taiwan
  • Invented the world's first Portable Medical Isolation Unit - in the fight against SARS epidemic
  • Recognised as "Top Performing Company in the category of Career Progression", 2017 - HRD Employer of Choice
  • To support our clients, International SOS operates fourteen 24/7 Assistance Centres in China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam

We serve clients from a broad range of industries that include: oil and gas, mining and infrastructure,  high tech, telecommunications, media, scholastics and NGOs.


Leading oil and gas companies outsource their medical and security necessities to us to meet their Duty of Care obligations. Many countries legislate on Duty of Care for the oil and gas sector and non-cooperation could carry hefty financial implications. 


Increasingly, companies from other sectors are applying the same Duty of Care policies and practices in Asia as they do in the West. As workforce mobility and diversity continue to rise, more and more organisations are working with us to develop preventive and business continuity programmes. Fulfilling their Duty of Care to their business travellers and international assignees.
