EP to PEP - need help

Post by peterparker » Sat, 05 Jun 2021 12:43 pm

Dear Forum, I am an EP holder looking to convert to PEP to have more flexibility in changing roles. Can I apply for PEP in my current Employer's name, or do I need to find a new job and apply in the new employers name? I am not worried about current employer finding out about a PEP application.
Thanks in advance for any advice :D

You can only apply for PEP in you own name. You current employer is not your sponsor.
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!

Thank you. But the Section 2B asks for employment details. If one were to complete that with current employer details (who is currently EP sponsor), would that cause problems with MOM?
Thanks

Who would you use otherwise to show your last six month pay slips for if you didn't use your current employer???

No offense but are you sure you are qualified to apply for PEP. Sure doesn't sound like it. I suggest you go back and read the requirements for applying, but this time, read for context and content.

Hello, these are the supporting documents that they want :

Personal particulars page of the applicant’s travel document. If there are any amendments to the particulars (e.g. name or expiry date), please include the pages confirming them.
 Applicant’s educational certificates
 Employment contracts for the applicant’s new and previous employment (if any)
 (If the applicant is not a current Employment Pass holder in Singapore) Employment history stating the company name, occupation, fixed monthly salary (S$), country and period of employment.
 Applicant’s latest tax statement
 Applicant’s payslips and bank account statements for the past 3 months

So, I'm currently an EP holder, looking for another role, earn enough to qualify for PEP, am aware that PEP is a one-shot.

Thanks

 Employment contracts for the applicant’s new and previous employment (if any)
New would fall under IF ANY. all the rest is self explanatory.
