EP Online Portal to be Replaced by New Online System
May 22, 2020 | Singapore
The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) is introducing a new online system that will fully replace the EP Online system by April 2021. The system will be implemented in stages. New Employment Pass (EP) and new S Pass applications will be the first to be processed under the new system beginning on June 11, 2020.
Employers will be required to use the new system as soon as their application type is supported–it will no longer be possible to use EP Online for new EP and S Pass applications beginning June 11. Applications started on EP Online but not completed before June 11 will not be moved to the new system.
The MOM has not confirmed when other application types will be supported under the new system but has indicated that it expects the second stage of implementation to occur between September and December 2020.
While the EP Online portal has brought considerable improvement to the immigration process, the new system is intended to be even easier to use.
