EP Approval Delay

Postby Globetrottr » Fri, 02 Mar 2018 3:28 pm

Hi All

My EP was applied by the new employers contracting agency on Jan 24th.

This was after the 2 weeks of job advertisement and selection process.

I am joining as a contractor for a resources company as a program Manager with salary in the range of >15K a month.

I have been in SG for about 7+ yrs on EP.

Not sure why the EP is still not approved.... obviously a bit concerned as it’s a good career move I do not want to miss, the employers are willing to wait for me to start, but everyone has a patience limit :)

Any advice?

Thanks

Even though the official processing time is 3 weeks, sometimes it takes longer or upto 3 months. Why not wait patiently? Nothing else can really be done.
