What is the expected EP Processing Time if encountered Public Holidays like Chinese New Year

Postby varunp007 » Sun, 03 Feb 2019 1:37 pm

Hi

I am switching job in Singapore, and have an EP application.

It was applied on 10th Jan, but due to some additional documents required, it was resubmitted on 25th Jan. It has been 6 working days. Considering 2 days leave of Chinese New Year, 10 working days will complete on 11th Feb.

Beginning to feel anxious as my Last Working Day in previous company was 1st Feb.

It can take as long as 4 weeks.

Re: What is the expected EP / DP Processing Time if encountered Public Holidays like Chinese New Year

Hi,

I find myself in a similar situation to those on this thread. My DP was applied for manually on 29 January 2019. The status is still pending. Is there anyone here who applied for an EP or DP around the same period, and has obtained their IPA or pass? Would be grateful if others in the same boat and reading this could share their processing time experiences here. Thanks!

Even if they did and had, it wouldn't mean jack-diddly squat to your individual application. How long is a piece of string?
