Hi jamesh,

I have a scenerio here. I did not tell my new employer that I havent cancel my old ep and they already start apply my new ep. (I will ask my old employer to cancel when I get my new ep ipa successfully)

Would new company notice that I still holding old ep when the new ipa is issued?

You dont need to cancel your current EP when a new employer makes a new EP Application. What if your current employer cancels your EP and the new application is rejected?

Hi Jamesh,

Im facing the similar situation like you. But I have been working with the company A for 2 weeks and now I got a new offer from Company B. They are going to do an new work pass for me. Is it any impact to my new work pass approval?

No impact. New EP Application/Approval wont cancel the existing EP that you are working on. Only when your New EP has to be ISSUED (this is different from APPROVED), previous/current EP has to be cancelled.

Possible.

New Pass - They will assess based on a set of criteria. But job hopping without staying on one for a fair time, might end up negative.

Where are you from?
What do you work as?
Why are you changing within 2 weeks?

So if I cancel for the current EP would that be any chances for the approval on my new work pass?

If you cancel your current EP without the new EP being approved, there is a high chance that if your new EP is rejected, you will be jobless
