Ensure that you are filling in the SAP 8i form only if you are genuinely interested to apply for any job vacancies with the public service. Your particulars in the form must be true and accurate. If you are found to provide false or inaccurate details, you will be blacklisted and legal action could be taken against you.

You are allowed to apply up to 10 different vacancies using one SPA 8 form. Applicants who fulfil the requirement criteria and are shortlisted will be called for an interview when a vacancy is available.

Complete applications will be processed and registered with the Computerised Data Bank of SPA. From there on, the SPA will issue  an Acknowledgement of Registrations Letter (Surat Akuan Pendaftaran) to the registered applicant. If you submitted your application online, you can also check the status of your application on the SPA portal after 3 working days of your registration. You will only be required to key in your MyKad number.
All applications made through the SPA 8 form are valid for 1 year after which you will be required to re-submit a fresh application. You are encouraged to keep track of the 1 year period whereby you must resubmit your application after that to enable updating of your records.
