I graduated from National University of Singapore(NUS), so they can very easily verify my education credential. I am currently an EP holder with another company in Singapore.
In my previous EP applications (prior to the recent change) I received an approval within 4 working days. I have now been waiting for 7 working days and feeling anxious about not being able to resign from my current job at the right time.
I am South Korean and I have been in Singapore since 2010.
Can a dramatic increase in salary be a reason for delay in processing?
I would like to understand how other people's experience has been, especially for those of you that have been in Singapore for a long time and recently applied for EP renewal or EP with a new employer.
There are many factors nowadays. Earlier it used to be mostly the employee credentials and salary alone. Now the employer credentials and details matter too.. If you are not able to accept the increase in processing time, so what? Even if you have graduated from NUS, that does not mean that you are entitled to an EP.
Please be patient and wait for the EP Processing to complete. Hearing from many other similar cases here will increase your impatience and nothing else.
