How long will my work pass (EP, S-Pass, WP) application take

My company applied for DP for my wife on 19 Dec 2018. Status is pending since then. I heard generally it takes couple of weeks to upto 2 weeks to get the approval. Since I haven't received it yet does that mean something is wrong with the application? Salary criteria is of 6K is being met. - Thanks

Nothing wrong, it just takes longer. Be patient!
If it is getting urgent, your employer can reach out to MoM about it.

Thanks, Beppi. Really appreciate your response. In that case, I will continue to wait patiently for couple of more weeks before requesting the HR team to reach out to MoM. No point in bothering MoM team also as they must be processing requests as quickly as they can - Regards

Morning Guys,

Took a bit of time but DP is approved now. Thanks, beppi and Surya for the bringing the calmness here. Have a great day ahead.


Just to update. My EP is finally approved.
Date of application: 20-Nov-2018
Date of approval: 16-Jan-2019.

Close to 2 months wait. During the approval process, MOM has stated that they require inputs from other agencies to process my application. I was told that means they are doing some background check such as loans, records, etc.

Good luck to all!
