Hi vini

Was you on TEP before? Have work experience??
and is your university listed on MOM website?

The thing is don't loose hope, apply for appeal with all the relevant documents, keep in touch with your HR and keep tracking your application by sending mails or making calls to MOM.

and also at the same time,start looking for another job in your country, if you have left your previous one...

well I think you dont need to approach any service from anyone . You and your HR can fight for your EP.

Thing is if your company is really interested in hiring you, no one can stop you from landing in Singapore..(this is what I believe)

Have your HR called MOM for possible reason of your EP rejection?
If you are in Singapore, you can approach MOM directly by taking appointment.

But I think there are some issues.

Because MOM dont want anyone to come on DP and look for job and starting working.

Though I am not sure how true it is but my sister who is holding DP , told me that she cant work for at least 2 years.

Ya My HR is in touch with MOM. I wanted to know if you employed any agency to help you with the appeal.

Not true at all. Read through recent threads. Lots of people on DP have letter of consent, even for their own company.

The main thing is to make sure that the employer understands how easy and cheap it is to hire a DP and apply for LOC.

Nopes. I didn't

1. Thing is I was in India that time.
2. But I consulted my relatives, friends and seniors who were in Singapore that time, who in turn used to ask their contacts. So I had enough guidance.
3. I am good in presenting cases.

Dont do anything in hurry..wait,relax, prepare and then only Fire :)

I would like to know how is EP better than LOC other than the fact that it is independent and unlike loc it is not tied to any EP.Should i be considering LOC instead of going for an appeal?

If you are here on a DP, that means your spouse is the one with the EP. If you are working on a LoC, it's tied to your spouse' EP. If s/he loses their EP, you also lose your LoC, hence both of you suddenly become unemployed. However, if you are on your own EP, then you are somewhat protected as there will still be one income coming in, albeit maybe a lot smaller - but it better than nothing coming in at all.

An EP is always better than an LoC. But you have to qualify for the EP (academically/experience in MOM's eyes), whereas you don't need to qualify for the LoC.

Now, this is a good question. From the employer point of view, the LOC is easier because they really don't have to justify you to get an EP... they just have to show that you won't be working prohibited activities like tuition, hair dressing, massage. On the other hand, you must be terminated if your hubby loses his EP. Overall, it is a reasonably good bet for the company.

For you, the advantages of the LOC are almost instant approval. The downside is that you don't get the insurance of a second EP should your hubby lose his.

If I were you, I'd try to work on the LOC, now that your EP has been rejected, get a raise, get a promotion, get something, then go for EP again.
