Didn't you bother to read all the information provided on MOM's site with regard to the EPEC before filling out the online form?13. Do I need to submit any additional documents to support the EPEC application? How do I submit these documents?
If we need more information to assess your EPEC application, we will send you an email to the address you have provided in your application. You may retrieve your EPEC application at https://epec.mom.gov.sg/epec and enter the reference and passport number to upload the following documents:
S/N............Document.....................Document Size & Format
1.......Passport Size Photograph.......60KB in JPEG format only
[Preferred dimension is 400 (width) by 514 (height) in pixels]
2.......Passport Particulars Page......100KB in JPEG format only
3.......Qualifications........................150KB in JPEG format only
[Maximum of 3 attachments per qualification]
4.......Skilled Migrant Visa...............100KB in JPEG format only
You have to submit the requested documents within 7 days from the date you receive the email. Late or no action on your part will result in your EPEC application being rejected.

No, double checked that. Had the foresight to imagine that specific scenario before this all started.sundaymorningstaple wrote:Are you running a spam filter on your email client? Is your deleted file automatically emptied when you close you client? If it is, it's a good possibility that you were sent an email and your spam filter may have bounced it before you saw it, unless you scan your deleted file before emptying it. (Which tends to negate the usage of spam filters anyway - but that's another topic).
Phoned them. The person at the phone number listed in the FAQ didnt even know how the online system worked. Email was not much better-- they simply said 'only those applicants who are requested to submit the documents will receive an email to do so' -- although I mentioned in the original mail that the mail I received stated that my application was rejected specifically because the documents were 'late'.At this juncture, it may be wise to called the relevant ministry to request a review of your case. Only they know the inner workings of MOM. We can only guess and surmise based on anecdotal evidence which in itself, may well have been a one-off decision.
There are other threads in this very forum outlining precisely the same problem, as well as at 'expats singapore'. Given that the support through both email and telephone seemed to be inefficient at best, (one might use the adjective 'incompetent' if one were less politically correct) it may not be surprising that HR would not have had direct contact with applicants regarding these issues.I would have though that if the system was faulty, there would have been numerous complaints and it would have been righted soon enough with email notices sent out to possible victims asking them to either resubmit or reapply or to contact the MOM directly. As I haven't had any notifications of glitches in the system (As an HR Practitioner & Manager I receive all of their notices when there are shutdowns or problem or maintenance issues).
you know samurai, when you applied for epec they will only ask your personal particulars, your passport number, your email address, and some qualifications. then submit. they will give you a number for you to check every now and then if it's rejected or approved.samurai wrote:Hi,
I have been rejected for epec but the worst part is that while applying online for epec it never asked me to upload any documents..
I am a graduate from a recognised university as per singapore govt requirements and also 12 years of experience and curently earning per month 2600 United Kingdom pounds which is equivalent to 6900 singapore dollars.
What is the appeal process if epec online system was at fault in not allowing me to upload my documents.
Any assistance will be highly appreciated.
actually, I just ignored the 'your application has been rejected' email I got, and resubmitted a new application the next day.Sofia888 wrote:

some won't ask for your diploma and passport picture to be uploaded. and they'd just reject it even not seeing your uploaded materials.
I odn't know why and how do they know who will be rejected or not. besides even if you get it there's no assurance that you'd have a job or get a work pass. as many people have been rejected by epec and somehow felt unfair. but that's their rules. i felt the same way too as i got rejected also the time i applied for it but then i got a job that i want in SG .. so don't worry much bout your epec. it is not your loss.
oh and you cannot resubmit coz it's only a one time application., ONLY when you have higher qualifications or higher degree than your past application then they might re consider.

three days later they requested documents.
I submitted the documents, two days later I received an email that it had been approved.
Messed up system, but whatever, I have an EPEC now. *shrugs*
