EP application Dec 2021

Wish ppl applied nearby Dec would like to share their timeline.
Heard so many cases around me got approval fastly. Really in anxiety now.

Request: Dec-31-2021
Pending: Jan-16-2022

Everyone tells me master's student from local uni should be quick. However, it takes more than 2 weeks already. And according to other applicants' timeline, 7 days seems like a release period. Shall I hold myself up until next Friday?

MoM itself tells a processing time of (at least) three weeks. Why are you worried after just two? Be patient!

Understand. Just as 2 friends (similar background) applied later than me all got approved. A bit worried. Curious about other's timeline.

Do you have a very short deadline, after which the job is lost? Or what are you worrying about?
The status "pending" means no decision is made yet, so you cannot read anything out of this except "it takes longer" - and there is no point speculating about the reasons why.

Kind of. During the long waiting time, the onboarding date in the contract is expired. Will this effect the application?

Hi,

We are on the same boat here. Still waiting for the result.

Hope to get the IPA soon 🤞🏼

Finger crossed for us. Truly feel the hostility from government to expats.

Update: Got approved on 19th-Jan. And I happened to know another guy same company applied on the same day gott approved at the same time.

It seems like approval is highly depended on the employer.

Credible employers with experienced HR teams who know what all information needs to be furnished often get approvals without any issues.

If the employers are not experienced and have been flagged in the past, or miss furnishing essential info, it sure is bound to get rejected.

Just to share:

7th March 2022: Submitted the application.

You also sent me the same as private message (which is clearly discouraged here, as it is a hazzle for the regular volunteers) AND also a contact request (which should only be done with people you know).
