EP approval timeline report

Postby chocolately » Mon, 07 May 2018 5:17 pm

Hey guys.

I have been checking this website to get some insight on how long it will take to get my EP approved.

Just a bit of background—I’m an EP holder since 2015. Last year during my EP renewal, my EP application got rejected twice and only got approved on the 3rd try after my company has upped my salary twice. Every application took 3 weeks each then.

Then I got a new job recently and my new EP got approved last Friday, within 8 working days. I created an account to share that information here, for all those looking for insights as well and to share the positive result.

Good luck!

Won't be relevant at all to your query. The salary is only part of the equation. The amount of salary will also depend on the amount of relevant experience for the position. If you have too many years of experience and the salary is too low - rejected. If the salary is too high with little or no experience - rejected. If you have the academic credentials but are a fresher with no experience - rejected.
