@ghimiredambaru congrats. :)

Just curious if you submitted your COE also to MOM?
EP6: COE in Singapore means "Certificate of Entitlement" and is an (expensive) permit to own a car. I assume you meant something else?

Hi Beppi, sorry for the confusion, what I meant was Certificate of Employment. My employer asked me to submit my certificate of employment for my 3 previous companies. I wasn't sure if MOM requires to submit also that. As per checking, these are the only requirements from MOM:

  • Personal particulars page of candidate's passport.
  • If the candidate's name on the passport differs from that on their other documents, please also upload an explanation letter and supporting documents (e.g. deed poll).
  • Company's latest business profile or instant information registered with ACRA.
  • Candidate's educational certificates (e.g. degree certificate).
Thank you.
As far as I know, MoM does not require Certificates from your previous employers - they do their own background checks if needed. But your new employer might well want to see them.

Hi Everyone,

EP application: June 16
Nationality: Filipina
Industry: IT
Occupation: Project Manager
Salary: 7,300

My EP was submitted last June 16 by my employer however, when i checked my status it says ‘no record found' until now. Is this normal or should i wait a couple of days for my information to reflect in the MOM system?

Hoping for your reply guys. I'm getting nervous as it's my first time to apply in SG. Thank you.
- @EP16


Update: my employer called me as MOM is requesting for a clear scanned passport. Maybe thats the reason i couldnt find any records under my passport. Already submitted a cleared scanned passport today. Hopefully i can see my records in the next few days. Thank you. 🙏🏼
In my case,

Just want to share an update:

My EP is alreay reflected in the system after 6 days. Thank you. 🙏🏼
Guys, I have a quick question. Once I land in Singapore and my Employer file for Physical EP pass, how much time it takes to get the EP pass on hand? Plus Do i have to go through Medical or anything?
If someone can share the thorough process, timeline etc would be great.
Jjoshi: Your IPA will tell whether a medical checkup is needed. After your appointment at MoM for issuing the EP, the physical card will be sent within 1 - 2 weeks.

@beppi Thanks. It says Declaration under “Medical Required” section. What does that mean?

Jjoshi: That might mean a medical declaration is needed. But you better ask your employer or MoM!

@beppi Makes sense, thanks again!

HI All,

MY EP got rejected after 7 days.  It says "Your application has not been approved. Please talk to your employer or agent.
"

May i know what could be the reason or can this be re- appeal? Thank you and hoping for your reply.

- @EP16
Your employer can request the rejection reason from MoM, as indicated.
An appeal can of course be lodged, but whether it makes sense depends on how it addresses the rejection reason.

@beppi thanks, beppi. I was informed by my employer that it has something to do with the company and will re appeal today. Will wait for another 3 weeks +++ for the result . Thank you. 🙏🏼

- @sksg_123

That's the expiry date of your IPA.
IPA is issued for 6 months, pass when issued for the first time by MoM is typically for 1-2 years, renewal is for 3 years.
