The reality is that not all Letter of Consent applications are approved. The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) evaluates each applicant based on the applicant’s and hiring company’s credentials. The outcome for LOC applications is given at MOM’s sole discretion.
Factors which may affect the application are:
- Applicant’s age, salary, citizenship, education, professional experience, and skills
- Roles and responsibility of the applicant in the new job
- Availability of local workers and economic viability of the company to Singapore
If the initial application is rejected, we will explore the grounds for rejection with MOM and based on the reasons for rejection, an appeal can be filed by addressing the issues raised by authorities. Please note that MOM will take approximately three weeks to review appeal applications.
