Dear All,

I need your personal opinion :-
My company had submitted Application for Renewal on 26/01/2012 for My Employment pass. But application was rejected by MOM, and then we submitted appeal for Renewal then MOM demanded several documents which we have submitted to them through Isubmit on 24/02/2012. But we got again rejection on 02/05/2012 after two months. And now rejection showing following reason “This Condidate does not qualify for an employment pass. Mom assesses candidates on many factors, including salary and qualifications. Any appeal will not succeed unless one or more of these factors change.”

If the salary was sufficient for the pass applied for, and you previously held that pass, it mean, in all probability, that your educational criteria no longer meets the minimum requirement for that pass. They have tightened up the criteria considerably. No more will a History major be allow to gain a technical position like before. Now you degree needs to be somewhat geared to the occupation you are applying for. In other words, you would need a Technical degree of some sort in order to get a job as a technician. OR, you would need considerable experience previously, e.g., 5~10 years, or both. Unless you educational qualifications have changed or you just acquired a whole bunch of experience, I'd say you are just about up the creek. If you reapply, and your income dramatically increases after being rejected, the odds of raising eyebrows at MOM will be great as it will appear that you are colluding with the employer to scam MOM by willingly participating in some sort of kickback scheme. This could cause the employer to get fined heavily and banned from hiring foreigners, but worse still, it could get you fined, jailed and subsequently deported and banned from Singapore. So, be careful, be very careful...... :-|
