Actually, this is not true in all cases. Depending on educational qualifications, it might be better to apply for an EPEC which is good for a year to look for a job. This would then not completely blow your odds out of the water. I personally would only take up a PEP AFTER finding an job and being granted an P1 EP. But, each to their own. Both have their merits, but as is noted, the PEP is a once only affair and if you use and use up the first 6 months without finding a suitable positon, you are dead in the water and the PEP is gone (even if it is for 5 years it's only valid for 5 years as long as you can maintain the required income levels. IF you qualify for the EPEC, then you have 12 months to look for that first job. Again, that is providing your finances hold out during that time.ep1 wrote:Employers are the one who sponsor EP for foreigners and PEP is personalised EP that is given once and valid for 5 years. So if you were thinking of moving out here without a job, PEP would be the right work permit that you are looking for.
