Hey Guys!!

My EP was rejected and now the company will do an appeal. How long could it take till I know the outcome?

It's for a position in customer service, they require European languages which i speak fluently (apart from my Bachelor + Master). The employer is optimistic on the outcome, because now they can argue why they need me (languages that Singaporeans generally do not speak).

I have another job lined up, it's also in customer service and they are also keen on European languages.

Can I submit two EP applications at the same time? Or do I have to wait for this one to come to an end?

EP appeal processing time would be 3-5 weeks. You cannot submit 2 applications at the same time.

Your employer's optimism must be matched by their wording in the appeal letter and not talking in person et al ..

And Maybe your first employer over-shot their quota .. and the second one maybe within quota .. who knows ..

Singaporeflyer: you are a wee bit wrong .. you can apply for 2 EP .. nowhere will it stop you .. as they are under different employers ... just that both may be rejected .. :D :D as it says "you must have an offer from A Employer" not multiple employers .. or somethign to that extent ..

Singapore speak - my answer is diplomatically correct I guess :D :D

Thanks to both for the quick answer.

Great situation I am in, no way can I hold at bay the second company for 3 to 5 weeks. They will just hire someone else. :cry:
