Employment still in pending status

Nice to hear your eventful entire process but successful. Wishing you all the best with your new employer. Good luck.

Hi folks , today marks 5 month of my EP pending status. Mixed feelings.. if they wanted to reject they would have done it in the first place. Don't know really why such suspense.
HR of the school said 2 months that they are in touch with MOM but wouldn't anything else. I think it's one of the longest EP waiting period ever.

rami25: I never heard of pending an EP over a period of 5 months. Certainly your application crossed all the previous records, I reckon. Good luck

Mine is still not approved and in pending status for almost 2 months now. Guess what Beppi said is true, nowadays 1-2 months is a normal processing. I have also friends who got their visa in 2weeks time and i believe this may depend on the agency too.

Hi how is your pass status now? Approved already?

Hi everyone,

I my self Pradip from IND. I got one offer from Singapore company, I was there For 6 yr already holding S-pass. but just 2 yr ago I left the country (Singapore) cancel my pass. Now the issue is my EP pending for more then 4 week (30th Aug 2017). My HR said we withdrawal the EP appication then we re-apply EP online again. My HR told me if EP appication taken by more then 45 day's it's long time to get your pass status (approvel or rejected). :blink: anyone facing same issue like me ??? :blink:

Hello Surya2k, my application already approved. For almost 2 months! Finally! Thank you very much! ♥️

4 to 8 weeks is now the normal processing time for an EP, and it can take longer in some cases. The time it takes has nothing to do with your approval chances, so be patient!
Cancelling and re-applying would not help at all.

If anyone is interested:

My EP has been just approved, in 7 working days, wasn't that bad as I was afraid.
