Success! Finally I got an EPEC. I told my wifey about it and was so happy to know the news. At first, there were so many plans on my mind, and don't know how to start.
The letter from MOM, which I have received upon their approval was:
"We are pleased to inform you that your application for an Employment Pass Eligibility Certificate (EPEC) EPEC-2009-xxxxx has been approved. Your certificate will be sent to your mailing address:"How long will the EPEC Certificate be sent?
They did not said how long will it take to send it, so I decided to do some research. There were informations online that it will take 1 month to receive my copy. My plan to Singapore was not that urgent so I decided to wait for a month.
I waited for some time until my calendar turned to the next page, November, but no EPEC copy had arrived. Then I decided to wait for another month, another page was torn down to fire a charcoal...and the month is now December.
I begun to worry. Two months of no copy is already not good. I need to inform MOM. So I decided to email them,
I have received an email from MOM on Sept. 2009 stating as follows.They replied to me that they will resend it as soon as possible. So, again, another days and months of waiting...until the date was February. That was 5 months after my approval. But then again...no postman, with a dog biting on his feet, came.
"We are pleased to inform you that your application for an Employment Pass
Eligibility Certificate (EPEC) EPEC-2009-XXXX has been approved. Your
certificate will be sent to your mailing address:
Address in PHILIPPINES"
Until now, I still haven't receive the certificate from your office.
Again, I sent a follow up email and told them:
"I would like to inform you that I still haven't receive the letter, EPEC, from your office. Kindly check if it was already sent to the address below:Their reply was:
I am planning to go to Singapore after I receive the letter. Hoping to receive it soon."
The certificate has been mailed. It might be lost in the process of delivering. You might want to provide an alternative address for mailing.I gave them a new address and hoping that someone will knock on our door with the copy of my EPEC.
Until it was time for me to go to Singapore, my copy did not arrive.
I don't know who to blame...
