this is my 4th time ep application, submitted on 24th November, still waiting for vetting process. I am very lucky that all last 3 application was selected for vicious checking, although there are no changes on my qualification. before this usually only takes less than two weeks, now I am getting nervous.

Hi Baltazarg,
Is this your EP renewal or a fresh EP application.
What I have read in different forums, EP renewal is taking 2 weeks or so and new EP applications are taking somewhere 2+ months.
My EP application already completed 2 months and it is still showing "Pending".

Thanks,
Shiv

Lets hope for the best buddy.
As I read on other forums is that be patient and things should move positively.

Well there are, but i got ur point. U mean if the ratio of.singaporean and foreigners is not ok, then ep will have problem in approval. Do you know whats he ratio of singaporeans to foreigners

not about the ratio, thats for s-pass. Your company must be known for actively trying to hire singaporeans in the past, interviews, etc.
