A Company that have a physical workplace in Singapore will definitely gives a good impression to MOM. In Paul Hype Page, we offer office space rental at a considerable price as well as providing the tenancy agreement if client wishes to use it as part of their supporting document to MOM.
These are some of the potential documents that MOM might request. By engaging with Paul Hype Page team, we will ensure that the documents requested by MOM are well prepared according to the guideline and ensure it covers the potential red flags to smoothen the EP process.
What do I do once my EP application is approved?
The total duration of the application procedure may vary; the Ministry of Manpower might require additional documents or verification of documents.
Once the EP has been approved, MOM will issue an In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter. An IPA letter is valid for six months from the date of approval.
After receiving the IPA letter, candidate may travel into Singapore for us to proceed with the card issuance procedure as MOM requires the candidate to be physically present during card issuance time. If you engaged with Paul Hype Page to incorporate the Company, our expertise will guide you one by one on what’s the procedure to apply entry into Singapore during this Covid-19 time.
If medical examination is needed, it can be conducted in the applicant’s home country through an established clinic or hospital or in Singapore. Most clinics in Singapore can provide a medical examination and report within one or two working days.
Medical examination must be done before the card issuance is submitted online.
Once candidate is in Singapore for card issuance, we will need the documents/info below:
Candidate SG mobile number
Candidate SG residential address
Passport with ICA stamp
Electronic arrival card
Electronic stay at home notice
Once our agent has submitted the card issuance online, we will then furnish the candidate a notification letter which will grant the candidate to stay and start working in Singapore. We will also book an appointment for candidate to complete the card registration process in Employment Pass centre.
Kindly be advice that you are required to bring along the following documents:
Signed declaration form (agent will provide)
Notification letter (agent will provide)
Appointment letter (agent will provide)
STVP extension (if any)
Once the card registration is complete, MOM will take at least 5 to 7 working days to assess the documents submitted for card issuance before they deliver the card to our office.
We will notify you once the card is ready to be collected.
What we are experiencing now is a tightening in Employment Pass regulations. EP renewal is no longer just an administrative procedure. If you are considering applying for your EP, you should be prepared with the right documents on hand. If your EP is under your own business, you have control over company level finances and contracts. You would be in an advantage because you decide how much capital you want to inject, how much salary you want to transfer.
If your EP is in the hands of an employer, be sure to discuss well with them. Or rather, you can take your EP into your own hands, set up your own company and suggest a contracting type arrangement with your employer. A lot less HR administrative matters your employer has to navigate, and a lot more flexibility on your part.
