extension of visit pass from MOM(urgent)

Postby sue zanne » Tue, 19 Apr 2011 2:44 pm

Hi everyone,


I'm back again. :) Too bad my EP for Company A was rejected and they were not keen to appeal for it. Now I have Company B applied for EP, again it was rejected! :( though the company submitted an appeal for it. So i have to wait for the result in 3 weeks time. My current visit visa pass will soon expire on the 28. Is it possible if i could ask for an extension of my visit pass from MOM while waiting for the result of my appeal? Should i go to MOM office?


Hope you can help me with this.

Thank you! :)

My 2 cents: depending upon your country of origin, MOM may or may not extend (MOM - not ICA)

For some countries, I heard the MOM Staff say loudly - "GET BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY AND WAIT FOR THE RESULTS. . "

For some - they were quite happy to extend - though I believe that decision is not based on their own individual preference and based on your pass process as well ..

My 2 cents would be not to U Turn, on the next trip - better if you can extend at MOM, or spend more than a couple of days in Malaysia, unless you have some pressing reason to not stay away from Singapore .. :D :D

>> yea ill try to drop by and plead MOM for an extension..hehe until i get the result of my appealed EP..hopefully hopefully it will be granted if not ill have to start packing my things and fly back to Phils!:(

>> is it possible that MOM wont grant my EP because I used to be an S Pass holder? they would likely only approve for an S Pass for me?


Thanks!;)

EP-S-Pass is based on a lot of criteria, and not just because you asked for it ..

I have been, in my yonder years, in EP and then dropped to S Pass and then went back to EP .. and my going to S pass was because of a nice employer who did something - or so I was told my MOM !!!

Have hope, and go for it ..
