First I want to share that there are some new requirements for EP applications from MDEC which will effect from 1st of September 2016. You can find the details on following link.

Second, I want to take advice/guidance for my situation.
I got a job offer which I accepted and resigned from my current company, and now serving 2 months of notice period. My current company have provided me the NOC (or release letter) and told me that they have initiated the EP cancellation process. Everything is smooth with the current company....
Then I submit the NOC to the new company so that they can process my new visa. But the new company told me that due to the new immigration rules they cant apply my EP now, they have to wait until my last day of notice period (which is also i suppose will be the last day of my EP validity as its cancelled).
But I check the immigration rules and haven't find any requirement like this. So actually I need to know following two things.
1. My current company have cancelled my EP. When this visa cancellation will be effective? on the last day of my notice period (i.e. 7th October) or they put some buffer?
2. When should my new company have to apply visa for me? They have to wait for my last day or should apply now?
Looking forward for advice and guidance in this matter. Thanks in advance!
