It means that they suspect your academic credentials and are waiting on the vetting agencies to get back to them before issuing any work permits. It can take quite a bit of time if you happen to be from a country that does not have all their university records computerized. Also, it depends on the load on the vetting agencies (some are MOM employees other are external agencies from what I've been told). There is not any way to speed them up as in most cases the holdup is from the academic bodies themselves. It sucks, I know, but as you know, the gahmen has been cracking down hard on foreign labour/talent (or lack thereof). Not much you can do except go down and take a chance of P*ssing them orf. Not a wise thing to do as they will tell you that you will just have to wait.

i have 7 years experience in IT have traveled to alot of countries ALSO and my EP was approved after 6 days via online application. Your employer maybe submitted you via manual processing which will take 6 weeks or more.

Last I checked, 5 weeks < 2 months.
It's common sense - if you try to come in before I go out, I can't go out. And you can't come in! Lose-lose!

i tried to explain that i have a transfer from major to another may be that's why their is a problem so go check again, then she said no that's it i cant help u any more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
so i cant believe if that's will be the reply from vetting agencies to mom what will happened should i call my embassy should i call singapore embassy in my country should i go back to my country and yell on every one
i am afraid i will be accused for submitting fraud degrees and its not although in the interview they didnt ask about the orginal ones


Even if you changed from one major to another were you not able to check using the registration number of the last major ? looks odd

That is why 90% of all qualification that was rejected as NOT due to MOM playing "dirty" but it is the fault of the applicant. Documents sent must be adhere as per instruction hence the delay.
The problem is the vetting is slow and you are impatient due to time constrain or visa stay constrain or whatever. You just have to wait, be patient
The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.Yahoo !!!

If you are honest and true regarding your degree, you surely need not worry. SG will surely hear what you say if you are true.
