Normally it takes from 2 weeks to 1 month for approval. You will first receive an "In principle approval letter" and you will be asked to have a medical check with that letter. It also takes 2 days to get the results of the medical check. After you submit medical check to MOM, you will receive your EP immediately.

It is still too early to say anything about your application. Wait for another week.
With my kind regards

Mine took longer than a month. It was during the end of the year, which is considered their busiest time, according to them.
