EP rejection and apeal

Postby HU » Fri, 28 Jan 2011 11:10 am

I currently encounter the situation that my EP application has been rejected due to "information inconsistency". The apeal is on going, I'd like to ask for some advices from you guys.

I just finished my Msc. in NUS, Engineering this Dec, and got my bachelor's degree in one of the reputable university in China, which also listed in MOM list. and I finished my MSc. in 3 semester, during which the first 2 was full time and the last semester was part-time since I managed to find a job. The previous company applied SP for me and during the application the information has been amended 2 times, first is they fill in a wrong passport no. and second time is they declared my master's degree which I was still pursuing at that time. But finally the SP has been approved anyway, and I suspect the record still there.

I worked in prevous job for more than half yr and now I find a new job which is more related to my background with higher salary, S$3000-3500. but the MOM reject my EP application within half day and ask my company to apeal.

I have 3 yrs bond with MOE for the subsidy of my tuition. It seems like MOE require me to serve in Singapore, while MOM is chasing me out, which is so strange and doesnt make any sense. Because I've quited the previous job aldy and plan to go back China for CNY, and the EP apeal takes 3 weeks processing, my company applied business visa yesterday for me to enter Singapore first, however, it was rejected today, with no specific reason.

I feel so frustrated and please give me some advices. Thanks a lot!

That is to say, your last year of the education included the 6 month practical employment, finishing in December when you was awarded your degree?

Now you have found a new job and have been rejected!

As i see it, Singapore are not obliged to let you in after your qualification on the grounds that there are Singaporeans that can do that job.

You know they have made it more difficult since september 2009. The best you can do is to ask the company to appeal the case, with more information stating why you should be employed rather than a Singaporean, the company really need to convince MOM in your case.

@KSL ; OP jas a 3 yr Bond with MOE. My understanding is if OP is bonded with MOE, his Pass application/renewal is a breeze unless OP is not telling the whole truth

There is missing link here :???:

Actually, I think the OP needs to appeal. We've been seeing a number of cases where all the right boxes are ticked and everything looks as it should be but rejection happens anyway. A fairly large number of those have been overturned with a simple visit to an MOM officer. Of course your HR Manager or preferably the MD or Manager should go with them, armed to the teeth with their reason WHY they need this person. I think it's just their way of making sure that the employer actually WANTS the person.

Of course, this is only my POV..... :wink:

I was under the impression that maybe the 3 year bond for subsidy tuition were up, if he's graduated and applying for full time employment. However you maybe right so the appeal should go ahead by his sponsor!
