Hi Jazz, happy that you saw a successful and smooth outcome!

I am in desperate need for some advise, if anyone could help shed a light, that would be awesome!!!

So..My case is different, currently, though. I was refused entry to Singapore (had my passport written with an 'NTL' --> Not To Land) and on the second time I tried (having purchased a flight ticket out), I was given only a 7-day stay.

Long story short, I received a job offer and upon application of my S-Pass, the company was informed that I am ineligible for a work pass. MOM mentioned on the phone to the company that it's likely due to my NTL case.

My questions are:

1. Did you get your EP approved without problem at all? How long did it take you?
2. What was your application detail, if you don't mind me asking i.e. job title, salary, years of experience
3. Did you write, in the EP Application form that you have been refused entry to Singapore before?

Any advises on this is truly, truly, truly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance!!!

Jazz0413, I would like to know what you did after landing at the airport. i.e., 1 Did you just show the IPA?
2 Did you also receive the ICA reply before flying?
3. In relation to question 2, how can i email the ICA? Is there certain site, template etc?

Thanks in advance!
