How long can one stay if EP renewal is rejected?

Postby FaeLLe » Wed, 23 Jan 2013 8:16 pm

Hello,

If someone has a valid EP till March 2013 and applies for renewal in Feb 2013 and the renewal is rejected how long can they stay in Singapore?

Can they continue staying in Singapore till the expiry of the valid EP they hold?

Appreciate any references or experiences from others.

Thanks.

You can stay here as long as the EP is valid. Your EP is valid until its expiration date, or your employment is terminated. I believe you will receive a 30 day SVP upon the end of your employment.

And, the 30 days SVP in non-extendable. You will have to leave the country for some duration of time.

What an irony. There are people with jobs but worried about EP and here I am with my PEP but not finding a suitable job.

I wish I could sell my PEP, anybody wants? :D

Atleast it will keep ticking for 2 more years. For someone who is worried whether his/her EP will be renewed next month, I thought, would grab a 2 year deal with both hands.

Obviously! Ep validity wouldn't change unless your employer cancels the existing EP. EP renewal is for the time beyond the current EP expiry date and has no bearing for the time period for which you have obtained already.

EP Renewal applied on Friday, Approved on Monday.
Safe for 24 months :)

Thank you MOM.


Just to provide some background for others benefit.
My circumstances changed a lot since my previous renewal (which clearly stated I do not qualify under EP Renewal terms and they gave me a renewal of only 12 months).

- Designation changed due to promotion
- Salary hike of around 30% (base)
