EP/SP processing time during May-June/2020

Hi all,

Since the start of the outbreak of Covid-19, MOM is tightening the issue of working pass. Usually, we need to wait around 3 weeks to 4 weeks for most cases. Just wonder how long you need to wait to get a new pass as well as renewal of pass during this period? (March-April-May-June)? Thank all.

I have known people (not part of essential services), their pass got approval in less than 2 weeks and few cases in 1 week in May’20 and post circuit breaker (CB) in June’20. But, all these work pass holders reside in Singapore.

So, it depends on job profile and how critical to the business then it’s demand in Singapore.
