Not allowed to apply EP because 2 company apply it

Postby hahaha2012 » Wed, 25 Apr 2012 10:35 am

Hi,

I need some advise regarding with my EP application.

Recently i got offer letter from Singapore and my agent applied for EP. This is the first time i have offer from Singapore and i need to relocate to Singapore.

But after 2 - 3 days, they told me that there is some company had applied for my ep and it was rejected and that company had appealed again.

My agent weren allowed to apply because two companies cant simultaneously apply ep at the same time.

I wondering how come another company apply for my EP since i never fill EP application nor give them any documents?

Do you ever have some experience to handle this one?

Thanks

How many companies did you send your application to ?

Hi,

Actually i only applied for 1 (not really applied since the process via head hunter that they call and offer the job via phone). I absolutely sure that i never applied to any Sing company before.

When the agent want to apply the EP for me, the MOM said there already EP application for my name. It was rejected and the company appeal. This is the root of cause since i NEVER been applied to any other Sing company or other agent.

So i'm really clean in this case since i just applied on 1 agent and they take care the whole interview and EP.

Is there some possibility that system's error cause this?

So .. why not this "AGENT" go ahead and find out the details and resolve ? I am sure they can do that if they have communication with MOM re: your pass ..

Yes, my agent want to talk with MOM and find out what is actually happen.
They just contact me to update the situation and ask some confirmation whether i have another agent or company that i applied the job.

I ask whether somebody have similar experience and can be shared in here

Just update the forum that looks like the issue already resolve and now MOM processing my EP.

Looks like it's system error that we can't understand also.

Thanks everybody

Just for sharing.

Last time, i face some issue when my employer apply the EP for me. MOM rejects saying that i am a PR. However, i never work nor stay in Singapore before that. Not to mention, my parent is not SPR or PR too.

My employer couldnt get a firm answer from them. We suspected that its due to system glitches.

Anyway, i got my EP approved after appeal and clarification from my employer.
