Build your Company’s Profile
Make your profile appear so great in the eyes of the people processing your application. A good company profile usually leads to a successful application. Otherwise, your application will not be prioritized or worse, be instantly rejected.
Niche industry. Some industries are easier to hire foreign talent than others. Tech startups are an example of a sector which we have seen fast approvals of EP applications.
Be in the Niche Industry
Oftentimes, what’s in your basic CV is not enough. Fast approvals of applications usually are due to some niche skills. Freelancers and techies for example are needed in every industry thus making their application on the top of the priority. So what does this mean? Simple. Do not limit what you can do. Try to explore especially about what is ‘in’ today.
Make a Back-up Plan
Once an application is rejected, there is a 30-day appeal which makes the rejected applicant defend for his or her application. Before even getting rejected, the applicant must have a back-up plan beforehand in case the application will be rejected. Planning for what to appeal while applying sometimes does the trick.
When applying for an EP visa, a proper designation is important. This aspect requires a lot of thorough thinking because the applicant’s designation should appropriately reflect the applicant’s seniority. Many rejections are due to improper, inaccurate designations.

Even though Singapore has maximized their labor force for the last five years, working there requires a lot more effort. There are a lot of things to consider, and although the working visas that they offer are not that hard to acquire, the qualifications are only easy to acquire for the ‘clever’ applicants. One’s application for an Employment Visa in Singapore may be rejected for many reasons. It could be because of technical errors, or maybe because the applicant is not really qualified. However, there are tips that could help. If an applicant really wants to have an EP visa, he/she should put effort into getting it. He should be keen enough to see all the loopholes in his application. Remember that technicalities count a lot.
