If your post is correct, then you will see what I mean. "MINIMUM" time is 14 days with no maximum time given.

My agency said that MOM told him it take 30-60 days to approve. Hope it is right information.

60 days can be acceptable, if it is more than 60 days then it is our problem

What difference does it make? Your application is not their application.

Without saying to much, I can tell you that the 14 days minimum processing time from May is an in-accurate information.

I applied for my E-Pass in May and it took 3 days to get the Approval.

Every case is different as someone said, and I believe that there are many things considered that we are not aware of.

Well if vetting is not involved and it is straight cut, it could be within 24-48 hours. That's what happened to me 5-7 years ago. But with the current climate of locals-first employment, it can take so much longer. To add, if you hail from countries under MOM watch list for forgery AND your application goes through additional vetting process, the sky's the limit.

It is my first EP, but I am European and it seems this matters.

So it seems, so it seems.

Then again, upon renewal, Even some Europeans are being put through longer processing time, it seems !!

This is what I heard too, I think that this is a very delicate topic since nobody really knows how the things work.
So I would agree to stick with the official replies , it can take long, as simple as that.
