Cancellation of IPA

Postby kitty1985 » Wed, 23 May 2012 9:58 am

Hi, would like to get advice on my current situation now:

last month, i had applied for a new job and the employer had apply for IPA for me. but after few days, their former staff decided to stay back in the company, so they decided to drop me and cancel my IPA.

2 weeks ago, i started another new job, but soon after that the company decided to cancelled my IPA also, this time is because they are closing down the department in a sudden due to some internal issue, all employee in the department was dismissed.

After two IPA was cancelled continuosly, would like to get all of your advice whether this will affect my future pass application and approval?

quite a bad and terrible experience lately =( =( =(

You cannot apply for an IPA ("In-Principal Approval" = the letter telling you to go to MoM and collect your EP).
I suppose the companies applied for an EP for you and cancelled the application after an IPA was issued?
If so, and if the reason for cancelling, as given to MoM, were as you mentioned (i.e. the company's fault, not yours), then it should not have a negative effect on your future applications. But you'll only know when you try again!

Sorry to hear that kitty. But as long as the companies cancels the EP application (hence the IPA) accordingly, it shouldn't be a problem but I don't know what implications it will have on you.

Hi, the IPA cancelled is for work permits instead of EP.
Althought the company did mention that it is not effected coz its work permit, the pass which was easiest to obtain. However im not very sure n quite worry =(
