One of my reader, didn't mention his/her name, asked me about this and I also find it worth sharing. I thank her/him for this.
I was disapproved at my first EPEC application...an email sent by MOM asked me if my documents are all authentic.
What was the reason?
In Singapore, Diploma means a 4-year course and below, which is equivalent to a vocational studies or 3-year course studies in the Philippines.
I have two degrees in Engineering. In the Philippines, we usually indicate the title as "Diploma in ____ .jpg" because this is what we used to do. So I used this term Diploma as the title of my files. The MOM officer thought that I have two vocational courses and not the two Engineering Degrees. That is why they ask me if all are authentic.
I explained to them and they ask me to re-apply again, so I changed the title to "Degree in ____ .jpg". I was then Approved.
What Photo Size?
MOM gave you the maximum byte size, so you need to follow their rules. Singapore is a strict country and don't mess with their rules.
For the photo size, it should not be greater than of what they require and should be clear enough so they could read. This should be translated in English if it's in your native language.
I hope I have explained it clearly, if anything bothers you or you have a violent reaction, LOL! Please leave a comment below.
