New Job - EP cancellation on 1/2/2018, can I start the same day?

Post by Hatem » Tue, 02 Jan 2018 3:40 pm

Hello there!

After almost 18 months in Singapore, I have decided to change job.
I managed to land a new one, applied for my EP on the 12th of December and got it approved around the 24.

Being myself on holiday at that time, I resigned only today, and my employer told me that my current EP will be cancelled on the 1st of February.

I was thinking: is it possible to start the 1st with the new job?
Or at least the 2nd?

Scenario I am thinking: My EP gets cancelled on the 1st.
New Employer applies for the issuance of the new card, gets the notification letter immediately (as per MOM's website), they will send it to me and that would allow me to work.
(Same day, or the day after at least).

Is that possible?

Thanks! :)

Yes it is possible. EP cancellation and the new issuance can happen on the same day. It has happened with me.
