Just received word from SIA. I missed the golden call so they emailed me the details 5 mins later. Was wondering if anybody had the experience of requesting a postponed date for training? How do I go about asking this? Should I call or email? The date given to me is on the 25th of October and that's so soon 😭

Hey there, may I ask what the email address is to send in an appeal email? The rejection email states that the address is a no reply email address. I have searched high and low and am unable to find a contact to appeal or even find out what went wrong. Appreciate any help at all, thank you so much.

Hello everyone,

I just got rejected after my health check up today. I suspect it’s my spine, because I had to do an X-ray. I emailed them asking for a reason. Do you think they will reply? Or do you think I can call up Fullerton to check? I mean it’s my own results right, I should know? Thank you.

I've went for the interview on 12 March and medical on the 17 March, received the email that my application was unsuccessful 2 weeks later. I suspected it to be due to the high blood pressure readings as they measured multiple times. I went back to Fullerton Health and speaked with the GP who informed that they took my blood pressure multiple times but was high. The GP referred me to a specialist.

Note: At this point of time, SIA had already said my application was unsuccessful. However, I proactively did the follow up myself in hopes to appeal.

At the specialist clinic, I did several tests such as Echocardiogram and 24hr Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring(ABPM). The specialist concluded that my blood pressure was normotensive and it was just nervousness at the clinic. They term this 'White Coat Syndrome". Specialist provided me the medical reports, wrote a medical review/memo stating that everything was normal, no abnormalities and does not require any lifestyle change and discharged me back to the GP. Paid almost $1k for the tests and consultations.

Went back to the GP with the medical report and review/memo, the GP seem hesitant to clear me fit for flying despite being normal as stated in the specialist medical report and memo. She explicitly said that White Coat Syndrome might affect me when I'm at high altitude. White Coat Syndrome only happens when I'm in the clinic, as proven in the 24 hour ABPM, does she not know? However, I provided her the original documents and she informed that she would send it to SIA HR as a supporting document, albeit quite hesitantly.

Anyway I emailed SIA the medical report and memo since 9th May in hopes to appeal as I am perfectly healthy, but no replies.

I guess they have their own protocol in which they will not entertain appeals after sending the rejection email even though you're healthy.
Thanks for sharing your experience. I actually read somewhere that they replied someone’s appeal email that the outcome will not change regardless if they walk in to try again, but I’m not sure if it’s because of their medical condition which is probably different from yours, or something else entirely like being booted before the medical round (can’t remember the reason they got rejected). So it seems like they actually have responded to appeal emails in the past. Not sure if this is a good sign for you or not, but just to let you know.

So sorry to hear that. When did you go for your medical check up?

There is a reason that it's a 'no reply" email address. And No, as an applicant you have no rights at all. Not until you have signed an employment contract, and even then, here it's not worth much. They don't have to give you a reason until you are actually employed.

Thank you for your reply! I understand that, I was just wondering if by any chance you knew a way to contact them because I see a few people mentioning that they sent emails in to appeal. I have not been able to find said email address or a contact number to call.

Hi Guys, been reading this forum for a few months and it has given me on a lot of info, thank you!

I would also like to use this opportunity to check if there is any non-locals that have went to the f2f interview on 24 feb 2024 but have yet to receive their golden email/call? Not sure if I should send an email to SIA, but have been researching they are not responsive to follow up emails now.

my timeline:
12/12/23 - applied online
31/1/24 - video interview
24/2/24 - f2f interview
4/3/24 - medical checkup
1/4/24 - follow up call to submit missing documents, if all is well will proceed to the next step of the application
