STVP extension EP cancelled

Post by NehaR » Tue, 09 Mar 2021 9:54 am

Hi All,

I am from India and working in Singapore. My EP is valid till 10th March and my STVP until 9th April. I am in the middle of changing jobs but my new employer can only apply for my EP on 18th March. This means that I have only 3 weeks to get my EP (IPA) and seems like a bit of a touch and go situation. Do you think I can get a STVP extension of 14 days? what would be the best ground for it to request MOM or ICA ?

Any help would be appreciated.

When your employer submits a new application for EP, they should be able to extend your stay at the same time.

Back when I was in this situation they extended my visit pass by 2 months each time a new EP application was submitted - but that was over two decades ago (when EP took longer).
