Employment Pass rejection

Postby maddyrocks » Fri, 21 Sep 2012 11:52 am

Hi,

My employment pass application got rejected initially with some incomplete information submitted to MOM due to a HR error. The employer re appealed again with MOM for EP for me with some clarification and documentation to justify my application. Even on second time it got rejected for unknown reason.

Is there any chance for MOM to approve my Employment pass again if the employer applies it again. ?

Is there any time period for reapplying employment pass in singapore ?

What may be the reason why my application got rejected.

It's very possible that even with the correct details you don't meet the requirements.

You can start with sharing your attributes, like salary range, nationality, age, etc, like this guy -> ftopic90557.html

True, but in the meantime...

Yes, there is a chance, if the new information is significant to the application. Sometimes EPs are granted on appeal (but many times they are not).

Not as far as I know, but others may want to comment further on that.

I believe the new information was submitted with the appeal and subsequently rejected again. That would pretty much seal it with that employer.

If it were rejected, it would give a general reason on the rejection. Such as you do not meet the criteria either academically/experience or salary (usually that statement is as far as it goes though), so you really don't know which it really is. It could be salary (even though your salary may be well over the minimum for consideration for the pass, under the new criteria salary levels will be adjusted upwards considering the amount of experience you have. Too little experience, die; too little salary for your age/experience, also can die. Now days, it's almost impossible to guess the reasons for EP/S pass rejections with the tightened up criteria.

Oh yes, you're right. Not sure how I managed to miss that from the initial post. :oops:

Eh? But my colleague doesn't receive any statements at all. It's simply "rejected" :-|

Appealing again with the same information will result in nothing more than frustration if there is nothing new.

Well, a sudden update on the salary section is kinda strange anyway. I'm not sure what's the tactic that HR will use this time.
