Employment Pass Application Pending

Post by rodri » Thu, 22 Aug 2019 3:59 pm

Hi mates,

I'm presently holding S PASS and going to switch to new job.
My new company has applied EP for me and it was applied on 14th August.
Now it's been 8 days and the status is Pending.
New HR told me that normally it takes 2-3 weeks.

I asked my friends who recently moved to new Company with EP got their pass around 1 week.
I cannot stay calm until my Pass get approved.

Is there anybody who recently got EP ?
How long you had to wait for it ?

Some up to three months, but 6 to 8 weeks normal maximum time. ~2 or 3 days shortest. Depends on how easy it is to confirm you input data on the application.
