What Should I do If EPEC Application is rejected?

Postby hsiao » Wed, 19 Jan 2011 12:56 pm

Hi All,

I have tried to apply Employment Pass Eligibility Certificate, however, It was rejected. So, I'm currently figuring out what I should do on the next step. Should I go to MOM for an appeal? Please advice.

I'm looking forward to hear from you all.

Thanks
Mr Hsiao

You aren't holding a degree from UK

This is your major problem, Singapore doesn't recognise these Micky Mouse distance learning degrees

:D :D Enlightening, but sadly you guys are right .. and I am sure 200% you can't appeal EPEC :D

Unless, you went on to do another degree / diploma and tried again ..

BTW, EPEC doesn't guarantee EP, and lack of EP doesn't mean you don't get your EP - it's about how much $ your employer is willing to pay, how big they are, and a lot of other factors ..
