clarification on DP and EP for my wife

Post by mandaralawani » Mon, 13 Dec 2010 10:33 pm

hi ,
i m currently working in sg with an ep..

i plan to apply for my wife's dp..i think it takes 1-2 weeks max for it..

she is also trying to find a job before coming here..

wat wud happen if:
1) she has a dp...and before coming here, she gets a job offer...can her employer file for her ep?..in that case, does her dp get cancelled?
2) her dp is applied and before her dp comes, if she is offered a job...offer...can her employer file for her ep?..in that case, does her dp application get cancelled?

any help is highly appreciated!!!

Yes, change DP pass to EP pass.

2) her dp is applied and before her dp comes, if she is offered a job...offer...can her employer file for her ep?..in that case, does her dp application get cancelled?

Same as the above.No matter how you twist your words , at the end of the day, you can only hold on to ONE PASS. You got EP, DP got canceled

any help is highly appreciated!!!

And also since you are already here on an EP, after she gets an DP, her employer can apply for a Letter of Consent from MOM for her and make her work without an EP.

The only disadvantage with this route is that LOC is directly linked to your EP and if you lose your job the LOC of your wife will also be cancelled.
