Got our EP and DPs approved today (all at the same time). We filed on 22nd July...long wait finally over. Good luck to folks waiting! Hope your wait ends soon with good news :)
Congratulations! Was EP and DP applied simultaneously and was it from outside of SG or from within SG? Also was it new or renewal?
Please see her past posts. It will be better to see some past posts before posting the questions
I did see all her 4 posts and from those I gathered that EP was applied for husband in July, and about asking for documentation in August and then about approval. If I’ve missed any and answers to my questions are in those posts please point me to those. Thanks in advance

did you read this from her post? - We are in the US.

Husband’s EP
- Nothing about renewal.

I re read and didn’t find. I think respecting other forum members, I will leave this thread here. It was an honest set of questions and you seem to be making a big deal of it. My question on simultaneous application was because our lawyers said they can’t apply DP unless EP is approved.

Ours was a new EP application. EP was applied on 22nd Jul and DPs were applied on the 24th Jul. If I can answer any other questions please let me know. I know how much reading other approval posts gave me hope so would love to pay it forward. Good luck!

I'm in SG and holding EP, the new company applied EP for me.
Mine was submitted on 4 Sep, still waiting.
Update: My EP is approved today! Applied on 4th Sep, on the 17th MOM requested further clarifications and supporting docs regarding my tax filing. EP is finally approved on 5th Oct, took the entire month.

Hope this cheers up people who have been waiting for their EP approval as well. Good luck to all!

Hi

When your EP/DP got approved were you able to get the entry pass to travel to SG? May I know how long did it take for them to issue it?




Anyone here who are outside SG that got their EP/DP can share how long did it take to get the entry pass to travel to SG?
