E-Pass rejected, but S-Pass approved: Kelong lah!

I refer to the article “Strange for MOM to reject an FT’s EP application at $5,500 but approve his S-Pass one at $6,000” (theonlinecitizen, Jul 29).

It states that “Earlier this month (9 Jul), an Indian national posted on the Singapore Expat Forum revealing that he was first rejected by the Manpower Ministry when he applied for an Employment Pass (EP) with salary of S$5,500. However, when his company later applied for him on S-Pass at S$6,000, his application became successful.

The foreign talent from India wrote, “I am from India and moving to Singapore for job as a Software Engineer. I am being offered SGD5500 monthly in my offer letter. According to my employer, they had applied for E-Pass but since it was not given, I am being issued IPA (In-Principle Approval) for S-pass.””

My friends said ” eh this one stranger than fiction right? Employment pass rejected then apply S-Pass approved!

Think must engage Sherlock Holmes lah – how come MOM so stupid one – you mean can apply again under S-Pass after employment pass is rejected?

Aiyah boss clever, MOM dummy lah!

This one surely will be very funny if any MP ever ask in Parliament – can you imagine what the reply will be hahahaha!

Eh I think I know why this can happen liao – MOM kenna hacked like SingHealth lah!

No lah – I know why lah – news nowadays always say much less foreign talent and many employment pass rejected or cannot renew hor! (“151st article “Biggest drop in foreigners working in Singapore in 15 years: Manpower Ministry” (Straits Times, Mar 15)) – “The number of foreigners working here fell by 32,000 last year, the biggest drop in 15 years, even as more locals were employed.

The fall was more than 10 times the drop of 2,500 in 2016 …

the number of Employment Pass holders also fell by 4,500 – the first decline in at least six years – according to the latest data released by the Ministry of Manpower(MOM) on Thursday (March 15)”.

The shift followed a tightening of foreigner hiring rules in Singapore in recent years” – so, die die also must show employment pass dropping mah!

But then now kenna pekjia lobang – according to MOM web site – the number of foreign workers on employment and S-Passes did not decrease, but actually increased from 372,000 in 2016 to 372,100 in 2017 – because whilst employments passes decreased from 192,300 to 187,700 – S-Passes increased from 179,700 to 184,400!

So, talking cock and mixing the numbers lah – also, “other work passes” increased from 28,300 to 30,700″!

MOM means more overseas manpower lah – like that no wonder sinkies dying lah!

Work until die provided you can find job first lah!”

    How do PAP knows that 8 chaps who sexually assaulted the pregnant goat until that poor animal died did not apply? Wonder which one pregnants that goat first? They also did that to a cow.

    Only one animal they dare not try – horse (kick until balless).

  • OMG:

    Wahhhh…. Aneh’s salary so high !

    Did MOM check thoroughly whether his company inflated his salary just for the sake of the S-Pass application ?

    S$6000 in India is already Senior Director Position. This Aneh Engineer should stay back in his own country. They love to enjoy authority and power.

    Strange that our Government and Manpower Ministry and our Uni are all “not co-ordinating” and strange that this Pappy Government can “be so off marked” in the projection of software talent meh ???

    So,…re we 1st world or is India more 1st World ????

    Pappy these days seems to be “conflicting” themselves ????

    Are Sinkies being “taken for a ride” by Pappy ????

  • SG needs Justice Bock:

    Monkey see, monkey do.

    Indian not qualified for the EP, change race to Malay!

    “Employment pass rejected then apply S-Pass approved!”

    Same right?

    Dishonesty is the best policy, according to idioms by the pap dictionary.

  • opposition dude:

    Use some common sense lah, the population has been increasing year on year. With low TFR the number of locals born won’t change much in consecutive years so guess where the increase comes from?

    Tell people S Pass decrease but so what, number of aliens keeps going up yearly!

    S-pass or E-pass – somehow he will get in. MOM never say NO to FT or their companies.

    Most likely he is replacing a local $G programmer who voted for pappies in the last election…..

  • True facts:

    Understood so that they can get the FWLs la.

    If EP no FWL.

    They are more interested in getting the levy for their million dollars salaries.

    That’s why they import shiploads of FTs into this land.

    That’s their main purpose. The more money the better.

    Now you know too late.

  • GREEDY GOV:

    E Pass there is no revenue to collect as you/employers do not need pay FWL or foreign workers levy

    S Pass, FWL applies. Employer need to pay gov – monthly S$650 for one S pass worker. This is for office white collar job

    In the construction industry, every foreign worker i was told – the employer pays a monthly levy of around S$950-S$1000 ….

    Hilarious!

  • WP to ask? Fat hope!:

    Uncle Leong in this article urged MPs to ask about this case in parliament, fat hope lah, WP will never ask they are well known for a Diam Diam party, their MPs are just happy to collect their $16K monthly allowance till 2020! Why should WP under Pritam Sigh deviate from LTK’s policy to stay quiet , not to antagonize the PAP , you scratch my back I scrtach yours lah make peace for everybody’s gd! There are many more important questions which affect Singaporeans livelihood such as high cost of living, retrenchments,foreigners replacing locals, train woes,Ago reported lapses, Ho Ching’s remuneration running TH,zero value of HDB flats after 99 years ,elderly increase suicide cases, NS deaths,high Defence budgets, 9% Sky high ministerial salaries,GST increase, water, electricity and gas increase………… No sound no picture what do you expect more! Only in GE rallies they would continue to pledge all the promises they will do for us, afterGE and enter parliament all is forgotten! So Singaporeans don’t hoodwinked by the WP rhetorics during GE only to feel cheated later on! To quote from an earlier response from a TR reader, ” voting in more WP MPs into parliament, what good, what for, what impact”
