PEP Eligibility

Postby vijaykrd4 » Sat, 12 Feb 2011 12:05 am

Hi All,

I have little confusion regarding the eligibility of PEP. I was a former P1 EP holder. Resigned my job and got my EP cancelled, left Singapore in early Jan 2011.

Former P1 Pass holders should not be unemployed for longer than a continuous period of six months at the point of application.

Currently I am working outside Singapore. So I am now a foreigner former P1 holder, so can I apply for PEP e.g after 1 year? Or should I need to apply only within six months of cancelling of my P1 EP? Rememer i am still on employment...

Please suggest within what time should i apply for PEP if i want to be successful.

Thanks in advance

As long as you were on a P1 pass and not unemployed continuously for more than the recent 6 months before the application, you can apply. Good luck

SF, can you type a little bit slower for this feller...... :roll:

I think, if he was on a P1 visa before, that he was seriously overpaid. :-|

I searched for the answer to this question. But could not find a close match, so am asking the seniors here

In Singapore for 2.4 years. 9 Months on Q1 and 1.5 years on P2.

For PEP the eligibility criteria is either 2 years on P2 or 5 years on Q1 or on P1.

Will they consider my Q1 + P2 experience and consider me eligible for PEP?

While I was on Q1 my salary was 3.5k.

Thanks

I am not the senior but it does not add up even with the simple mathematics: 24*9/60 = 3.6 so you would be short of 1.4 months..

He is actually 2.4 months short.

Q2 duration of stay in P2 equivalent months = 3.6
P2 duration of stay in months = 1.5*12=18
Total duration of stay reqd for P2 in months = 24-18-3.6 = 2.4 :)

Applying for PEP - should I tell company

Postby DeanSG1 » Mon, 20 Jun 2011 9:19 pm

If I apply for a PEP in my first 6 mths of employment, do I or MOM have to tell my company of my application. 4 mths in to the job, finding it's not right job for me.

The result of your application will be cc ed to your company in the letter. Also I read some where in the PEP application asking have you informed your employer that you are applying for PEP was there... So, if you want to do it all right , you must inform your employer as you would need to declare that in the application saying that you have informed them

good luck !

Mean while are you on a P1 Pass to apply for PEP within 6 months of employment?

SF is bang on the money. To your surprise, particularly if you are using an outside agency for the application process, your employer will be CC'd on any correspondence and will be made aware of anything going on in the PEP application process. So be honest and upfront to save yourself any hassle trying to justify why you made a PEP application without informing your employer....

It depends on how big the company is - mine had no clue about my PEP until they contacted me saying that I needed to renew my EP!

The thing to be aware of with a PEP, is that once your application has been successful, you need your employer to cancel your EP, so you can issue your PEP online. Then go and collect it from MOM.

I am not sure what happens if they refuse to cancel the EP.

Sure they can. Up to a point. Eventually, though, you can always have it cancelled yourself, but it's difficult nowadays.
