E-pass

Postby cmonkeyhiney » Thu, 06 Oct 2005 4:16 pm

How long is the average processing time for the e-pass? My agent specified Nov 1 in the contract as my start date but the processing of my pass only started last Tuesday.

Rarely, but I've heard it depends on nationality and background (race?). I was told by HR for my nationality and background it's very common place here so my chances hovered closely above 0% of rejection...

In the end, it's a chance you have to take, assuming you need 1-month notice to current employer?

They normally say that it would take 3 weeks for processing, but in most cases you get approvals within 7-10 days. It basically depends on your skill set, supporting papers and of course, nationality and race! :shock:

I take it your second sentence below means you have NOT received the letter?

Have you checked with your sponsor?
