Mistake on EP application

Postby Pumpkin2010 » Fri, 14 May 2010 4:09 pm

Hi - hope someone can me give their thoughts / experience on an EP application matter.

I completed all the sections on my EP application, provided copies of all my certificates to my employer and they submitted the application online. A letter of confirmation was issued however when I checked it the HR dept had completed it incorrectly. I immediately informed HR and obviously try to claim it was my fault! Anyway, they said they would send a letter to the MOM and this would sort the matter and no need to make a new application.

I plan to obtain a copy of the letter so I can take it along with me before I sign the declaration.

Does the letter correcting the mistake sound okay? Is this sufficient?

Am keen to sort of the EP as soon as possible so I can sign a Tenancy Agreement.

logically speaking i think it depends on what mistake.. is it serious enough that it would have affected the approval of your EP?

when i applied for my EP, it was initially rejected because i had put a "diploma" under qualification instead of bachelor's of science, which is what i have. after the correction was submitted my EP was approved within a week or so.

HR dept swapped over the details of my degree and masters. They stated my degree with the dates of when I did my masters.

By the sounds of it, given MOM sent an in-principle letter based on my degree when I have a masters, would be a good sign.

Just dislike the idea of having to sign a declaration with incorrect details, despite supporting letter.

Thank :)

...now just need to arrive and deal with finding an apartment...

Have the same problem, approved but one my degrees has a wrong start date (+1 year)

Hope a letter will do or just telling them when I collect my EP.

Your employer needs to submit a letter and they would reconsider the application again. Mostly you should get it I feel.. Good Luck !
