Depends on what query MOM asked and after that how long MOM needs to check on that to verify it.

I understand this is a complicated process but on other hand I do believe that for legitimate applications there must be a defined timeframe or processing time to respond on answered queries.

Believe whatever you want. It is what it is. PR approvals are a good example it can take as little a 6 months up to 24 month for processing an application and the length of time has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the success or failure of said application. It is what it is. There is no MUST BE. only MAYBEs.

2 Weeks ago when i called MoM about the application status then they suggested for expedition and said they will reply in 5-7 working days.

For which we received the reply within this time frame and now MoM executive informed that when they will receive the query answer then they will reply ASAP - (So here time frame is not mentioned which i am not sure how long it will take to verify)

My EP is pending from 20 days, my employer has applied on 10/03/2021 and the status is still pending.

on the website it shows 3 weeks but not sure how long will it take.

Hello Everyone,
Thanks for your responses. I didn't get the EP approval even after waiting for 2 months so I had to drop that opportunity. Instead I got another offer where my EP got approved in 8 working days. I will be joining this firm by 3rd week of this month. Hoping that everyone's EP get approved soon. Sorry for the delayed reply. God bless everyone !!

Glad to hear that nitsjits26. But this goes to show exactly what I've been telling everybody on here the length of time it takes or whether or not the submits docs button is available and working is not an indication either way as to the success or failure of an application. Be it EP, S, PEP, PR or SGC application. with regard to S & EP applications I said this till I'm blue in the face, it's 2 part process, both the employer AND the employee have to be vetted and approved. Not just the employee. It's sound like that may well have been the case for you. Glad it work out for you.

Hi nits,

Did it get rejected? How were you able to apply ep for another company? What made you to decide to go for the company? Did company 1 inform you that it won't get approved?

No, it didn't get rejected. I had to ask the employer to withdraw my application before submitting another one.

Thanks Nits,

Did employer 1 give any indication or reason for the delay? Why do you think that one did not go through and the second ep went through. Just trying to understand.

No, employer just mentioned that it was pending with IMDA. They tried raising multiple tickets through MOM but it didn't move.
