The procedures are simple, but there is always risk involved on the EP approval side.duluoz1 wrote:Hi all.
I've been with my current employer for just over a year, on an EP. I've applied for, and been offered, a new job with a different company that I'm inclined to accept. They've told me they will manage the new EP application process, which they expect to be straightforward.
In my experience though, it's dangerous to assume these processes can be simple.
Has anyone else been through this process, and should I expect it to be smooth? Or are there possible complexities I should be aware of? I won't resign until the new pass has been approved, of course.

- you may get vetted or extra vetted (if you were not earlier) what may take long months
- your application may be rejected - internal policies and the job market may change as per MoM's view.
- lastly, your current company may play dirty trick refusing to cancel your current EP and without this, you won't get anew one
Anyway, whatever you do, do not quit your current job without having the in-principle approval of the EP for the new one. If not possible, you may find yourself without any job and any pass.
