Just to ask if any employment pass holder able to switch job and grant a new EP during this covid 19? I am offered a better position by another company, I concern about my new EP application as the chance of approval is quite limited.

Risky if it doesn't pan out. I've watched with great amusement some of our senior execs and execs try to jump at this time - the chasm has suddenly opened up and they have fallen into the pit of joblessness as their certain new job suddenly disappeared and they have already resigned.

@PNGMK why wouldn't Exec and Senior Execs use the PEP route, that shouldn't be a problem during job change right? or any issue with PEP as well?
