Author Topic: Spass -> EP upgrade?  (Read 6069 times)

There have been questions about this, but no clear answer could be found.
-Is there an upgrade procedure from S-pass to EP, without interrupting employment?
-If so, does the employer has to apply for this? or the employee?

I think I satisfy the P2 requirements (4k~/month salary, university degree, professional job offer, although no past employment), so don't understand why I'm getting an S type.

And when I check application status on MOM website, it looks like the application (submitted by the agency contracted by my company's HR) was made for S-pass from the beginning, rather than EP. Can anyone advise how to update the existing pass?

I think there is going something wrong. With an income of 4k you are not qualified for P2, but P1 (over 3.5k).
As you wrote ~4k I guess you have a fixed salary and comission base. It seems your fixed salary is below 2.5k, thats why you just get a S pass.
However, you can't change any status, it has to be done by your company. There is a downloadable form at MOM's website called 'appeal for up/downgrade of S/E pass'. Your company have to fill up and mail to MOM.

The income qualification for P1 is 7000 SGD pm. ( A princely sum by local stds)
I think its 2500 SGD pm for P2.

S Pass = min 1.800
E Pass = min 2.500 for Q1
         min 3.500 for P1
         min 7.000 for P2

Base (fixed) salary is 4.3k + other benefits/bonus, so should be good for P2.

A problem is, when I look at the appeal form from MoM, it needs new justifications, such as salary/position/experience change. In my case, nothing has changed since we applied initially.

if your fixed salary is 4.3k then good for P2, MOM doesn't look for benefits. You should ask directly at MOM why they gave you S pass only

Thank you everyone who replied.

I spoke with MoM, which was rather helpful. It turned out, while applying initially, the agent could not find "Hon.B.Sc". I had in the MOM's list of educational qualifications. So rather than selecting "B.Sc", she chose "the Other" option - thus the MOM system did not recognise me as having post-secondary education.

I guess we will be making an appeal.
