Subsequent PR and EP applications

Post by Windmill83 » Tue, 17 May 2016 9:23 am

Hi,

I am wondering if I could get your advice on the ever reappearing Singapore PR issue.

A while back I have applied for a PR in Singapore, I have been working at my company for a consecutive 3,5 years.

Now I got and accepted another job offer and the company has applied for an EP for me. The application status is "pending" since 2 weeks.

Is there something I should do regarding the PR application once the new employer is applying for an EP? Should I inform the ICA in any form of my intention of changing a job and that I have signed an offer letter?

Thanks

Update ICA as soon as the new EP comes in and the job starts... you're not Ukrainian by chance?
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

He thought you were someone else. Nothing to worry about on your end.

A while back I have applied for a PR in Singapore, I have been working at my company for a consecutive 3,5 years and earning approximately 9,5 k SGD fixed.

Now I got and accepted another job offer and the company has applied for an EP for me. Salary 12,5 k SGD fixed. The application status is "pending" since 2 weeks.

Is there something I should do regarding the PR application once the new employer is applying for an EP? Should I inform the ICA in any form of my intention of changing a job and that I have signed an offer letter?

Further details (I wish this was not important):

Thanks
Yes, you should email the ica, with details of your new job and salary. A scanned copy of your new EP.

No you shouldn't. Not until you have actually got the new EP. Until then you either are working for the previous company or you are unemployed. Do NOT jump the gun and then have to possibly retract (doubtful it's going to happen, but it tells ICA you don't mind gambling. By the numbers. It's the safest way.

Oops, yes, I meant "after" he gets his EP. I just read the post again, my bad. I didnt notice it the 1st time, what he was really asking.

Hello,

Yes thanks. I got an EP IPL and I will update ICA after I have the next EP issued.
Do you know anything on what are the current rates for approved PRs?

Thanks
