Which hospital did you apply for ?

Nursing board approval can be erratic.

Are you from Sabah Sarawak by any Chance ?

If nursing board is already approved, then got to wait :)

Can't do much for your case.

Maybe KTPH HR file the application late.

Yeah, both Sabah & Sarawak are eligible, it is whether you are or not. Therein lies the question.

Like my case..im 34yrs born sabah..ex-serviceman with 11years in related field..min education, with no dip/ degree in field just training cert in service and after service 1 year..according from my agent, training cert in service not applicable( not recog by MoM) since its not from training school..

Applying s pass with 1year training, fixed salary meet spass requirement, experience 11 years

The problem is 34yrs sabah, n min educational cert..

Are there any chance, high % for approval?

Sabah doesn't enter into the equation at all. You educational qualifications coupled with your years experience vrs your salary being offered is what will make the difference. It sounds to me like you might be eligible for a Work Permit, but an S pass is likely out due to the lack of formalized education. I wish you luck, though. Try for it, if no go, consider a Work Permit.

I think zamsa75’s concern stems from this media report 7 years ago
https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/ ... -singapore

Which MoM had, of course, denied
