thank you guys. My question actually is focusing on the processing time of obtaining a new work permit 

ironman510:

First, Work Permit and Resident Permit are now two very different things, your work permit will take any where from 3 weeks to 3 months depending on when your current visa ends, next the PSB should finish your Resident Permit in 7 to 14 working days. Thats why I asked when your current visa ends, but you didnt answer my question so I cant help you beyond this point.

When does your current visa end? If it's gonna end soon you can get it pushed to the front of the line and 2 to 3 weeks at best or 2 months if your current working permit still has time.

A few more details would let us help you better.

Can't talk about getting a new one but it took me over a month to get my ABC card then 4 days to renew my visa. Used to take something like 2 days to renew your FEC before.

They ask for a ton more papers than they used to both from the employer and the employee. It's a new system so kind of a complete clusterfuck at the moment because even the people in charge have no idea what they need from you. Tell you they only need X and Y, call you 2 days later to say they also need Z, and then call you again 3 days later to say that finally they need A and B but didn't need Y in the end. So the whole process should be smoother next year as they get used to it.

Also I'm kind of a special case since I have my own company and sponsor my own visa, but I'm almost sure that they ask for the same documents from your employer.

That's because they upload our documents online now and wait for approval than go get the WP Card.

Yes, actually it's your employer's responsibility to upload documents online for them to check, which in this case is more practical than the old fashioned way of going to the labor bureau in person to deliver every documents and again if you or they forgot some.

 

Now there is a portal online where you enter your business license number and the password they gave you, there you can upload all sort of image files from scans. You only need to go to the labor department once everything is right to drop/pick up your ABC card now.

 

Much more practical, yet so slow, most likely due to the newness of the whole thing, it will probably get faster with time.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
