I was invited to switch to PEP while being on P2.

That's actually the safest answer. However, there is nothing stopping you from applying now. Who knows, you might get approved or you might be told to reapply later. Or, worst case scenario, you might get outright rejected and told you are welcome to stay here employed on an employment pass. At least that way, you don't waste a lot of time here if you are here to gain PR/citizenship, but can start looking at other venues that may be more receptive to PR.

Long, 5yrs I believe but this is a bit irrelevant in my case as PEP is relatively new invention being available from 2007 or so onwards. I got invited soon after it was introduced.

It would be interesting to know how many invitations have been sent out to qualifying P2/Q holders since the beginning of this year though, seeing as how most everything else has be curtailed rather drastically. :-k

I was on a P1 (under the sponsorship scheme*) from Nov08-Apr09. When I got that approval letter, it had a line saying I had in-principle approval for PEP, just need to submit the application & supporting docs. I did, and got the PEP.

*MOM now says P1 under sponsorship scheme is not eligible for PEP.

But then it's election year...many rules have changed... :???:
