Well, no offense.

In the past, (to rehash History), it used to take 3 to 4 months for processing passes.

Because, when they process a pass, they are in a way giving a long term residency to a Foreigner to live n Singapore.

Then in early 2000s' MOM went through some soul searching and rumour has it (only Rumour) due to Some Agreement with India, SG Inc allowed mass deployment of Indian Professionals to Singapore, along with a lot of other foreigners.

And passes were approved within a week or so. Not months.

And then come election time, the natives said "NO, NO MEANS NO" to too many foreigners, property prices going up, public transport too crowded etc. etc.

And at the same time, a lot of manufactured credentials and such started surfacing, embarrassing the Govt and some Govt agencies who were found to have employed fake degree holders or those with fake experiences etc. Even Fake Research papers.

So back to Square 1.

And at the same time, the Govt finally took note, that many employers preferred to employ foreigners than locals, being cheap being one of the most important decision maker. And the unemployed Locals started to ask why they are being replaced by Foreigners (who is right or wrong is another story .. )

And then came FCF. Which ensured Employers give locals a chance, especially employers who had zero intention of hiring locals, however unskilled the work was, or however low the pay way.

Now, if you are from countries who's applicants are extremely law abiding, and have a good track record in Singapore and joining an employer who has been employing locals predominantly and very few locals, your application will sail through, in 1 week or less.

Now you can, with my verbal diarrhea conclude what's causing the delay for YOU !!! And why 6 months of delays aren't to be worried much.

PS, how long does it take back home, for a foreigner to get a work pass ??

Thought you said it changed to pending once the appeal started?

Sounds like you need a plan B

No, it doesn't change after appeal made,, the HR said after appeal status will be rejected in that website ....appeal status can be checked through to EP ONLINE ....is this correct

You are confusing all of us. You earlier said it changed from Rejected -> Pending Vetting -> Pending... Now you are saying it is Rejected in the website....

That's the problem, I'm afraid to tell you. Your countrymen haven't done you any favours.
