EP processing times in December 2018 - Holiday Season

Post by amitsinghal5 » Tue, 11 Dec 2018 1:57 pm

Hi Guys,

I heard EP processing time increase in December due to the holiday season.

Anyone, who got their EP approved?

I applied mine on 4th Dec. Still in Pending state.

Thanks,
Amit

Dont you feel it is too early to ask for when the average processing time is atleast 2-3 weeks?

@singaporeflyer I agree that is the time MOM gives, but we see most of sound applications process in a weeks time.

If that's the case why are you bothering to ask us if your mind has preconceived notions?

getting anxious and raising it in the forum, wont speed up your ep application. May be instead of anxiety, if you have gone through the other threads in the forum, by now you would have understood that 3-4 weeks is considered normal processing time for EP.

How many years of experience, what is the salary, designation?

Did you try the SAT tool?

SF, his application was for an S pass I believe as his SAT only showed him eligible for the S pass. (No experience, just quals).
