Is it same for every one FIN generated or not ? After FIN generated how much time it will take to get EP ? what is the relationship between FIN and EP ?
1) About FIN and EP : this was answered a few times
You may do some search here ..
2) In any case, since I have a strong belief that you want answers NOW, than your doing your search .. EP Applications get a FIN # assigned, once they have been reviewed. Unlike in the past, now I understand FIN # can be seen by the applying company. However, a FIN # - which is a reference number, means nothing until an IPA is issued.
Time between FIN # and approval ? Well, FIN # doesn't mean approval. It leads to IPA - In Principle Approval - or rejection. Note that until you get the IPA, come and do the formalities, you have no EP, so to say.
Should you get an IPA, then the FIN # becomes your identification number in Singapore, until you leave, or get PR. Even if you leave and come back a few years later, they will issue the same FIN # to you. (yes, I know, I am in a bit of good mood today .. )
