EP Appeal: During the COVID 19 Circuit Breaker Period in Singapore

Post by thedesiboy » Fri, 15 May 2020 3:10 pm

Hey Guys, I got a Job Offer in Singapore and my Company had applied for my EP. It got rejected within 2 days and the reason given was because of the current Circuit Breaker measures. It also said, if the employee is already in Singapore, they can submit an appeal.

I am in Singapore and have been here since March. My Company has submitted the Appeal on 8th May 2020. Have any of you experienced the same? I have read online that the Appeal generally takes 3 weeks but since the circumstances are different, any idea how long it is currently taking for people?

Some additional info: I've had an EP previously (last year) in Singapore and after leaving my previous company, been on a 4 month gap before getting this new job.

Please share your experiences or any info you guys have. Thanks in advance! :)

Hi Thanks for the reply. Yes, I've gone through the other posts too on this forum. Hope it gets approved fast.

During the 4 months gap, I was on a Tourist/Short Term Visit Visa but was travelling most of the time. Now, it's been about two and a half months since I have come back to Singapore (Staying with my Parents who work here too). I haven't left Singapore because of the current situation and no flights. Currently on my 2nd Tourist Visa extension.

Hope for the best! :)
