EP processing time May 2019

Hi All,

Had applied for EP last week , till today status is pending.
My last EP was approved in 5 days. And renewals took 10-15 days.

Forum postings from last year gives me an idea that it may take 2-6 weeks to get outcome from MoM.

Any recent experience of quicker turnaround.

HI, the information based on other post is around at least 2 weeks recently, I am also waiting for the approval, now is pending status, the application time is 27th May.

Thanks. Pls let know if you see any update.

Here is my status now:
16th May: Application of the pass
22th May: "We need inputs from other agencies to process this application. In most instances, the outcome will be available in 4 weeks' time. Some cases may take longer.

Till today it's still the same status.

If the SAT shows that the candidate is eligible, there is around a 90% chance that the candidate will get a pass.

How true is this fact on MoM site.

My case:
Submit from 21 May.
Status now: pending.
As I observe: The approval usually come in 7, 14, 21, 28 days, so on and so forth. So if 7 days you still pending, then another 7 days.
I'm going to negotiate with my employer to change my join date. I hope I don't have to provide any payslips or income evidence. :(

Hi, 7days including weekend? MOM work at weekend ?

They don't work on weekends.

I mean that we should count by week. Haha. The first week might be exceptional. You can get approval in 2-3 days. But after one week with no approval, then let's count by week. Let's say you submit on Monday. In the first week, you don't get luck then it likely to have approval on another Monday, not the other days. That is my observation based on the post on this forum. :D Anyway, we can't do anything but wait, so let's relax and the result will come. :V

Any update from anyone?

still pending.

Same, status is still "We need inputs from other agencies to process this application. In most instances, the outcome will be available in 4 weeks' time. Some cases may take longer."

Hope it can be approved fast :(

Hi Mr_Mister

Hi , Actually I am job changing this time, and 2nd time for EP applying

Thanks, if possible may I know what is your salary range.

Hi He, my total package is 15k+, And some increase against current company, not sure when I can get the IPA letter

Thanks Thomas, I am seeing trend that salary more that 10k get faster approval.
You should get IPA today or tomorrow IMO.

It seems that MOM officers tend to approve in morning.

Tks for your information, hope everyone here can get approval ASAP💪

Hey,

Congratulations. So morning was pending and now approved?

Congrats! How often do you check the status?

So it's around 1PM you got the approval?

By the way, does your status have "We need inputs from other agencies"?

I check it every 2 hours. haha. It was Pending this morning, after lunch, it became approved. It move from Pending to Approved. No other state.

Hi Thomas, may be you contact your ep application agency or MoM.
They would know perhaps.

The IPA is a one-time entry visa.
If you need more entries, you must get an SVP.

Many have experienced the same. MOM requested other agencies to verify your educational qualifications and certificates. Looks like they received the report and your application is back in processing stage for other params- hopefully soon the outcome will be decided.

U asked the same on other thread and Surya already replied you there.

PLEASE refrain from posting the same thing multiple times.
If you do, the site‘s volunteers (like me) and the forum team have to spend time cleaning up your mess and deleting your multiple posts, instead of giving useful advice.
The same is true for people who send their questions as PM to several volunteers instead of posting them here.
I personally have stopped giving advice to such people, because I don‘t like to waste my time.

No approvals since Monday ?  :(

No update yet.
Wednesday was a holiday

Still Pending..
