10 things you should know about being employed in Qatar

10 things you should know about being employed in Qatar
Sukanya Seshadri

Whether you are exploring career opportunities in Qatar or already working here, you must be aware of your rights and duties as an employee.

Here are some essential points compiled from the Qatar Labour Law, Ministry of Interior directives and tips from HR professionals:
1. Before signing an employment contract
Make sure you’ve understood it completely. Contracts submitted to the labour ministry are bi-lingual. Ensure you’ve checked both parts of it. According to the Qatar Labour Law, the following articles must be clearly specified on a contract:

  • Name of employer, place of work
  • Name, qualifications, nationality, profession and residence of the worker and the proof necessary for his identification
  • Date of conclusion of the contract
  • Nature and type of work and place of contracting
  • Date of commencement of work
  • Period of the contract if it is of a definite duration
  • The agreed wage and the method and date of the payment

It’s the employer’s responsibility to take care of your visa expenses.

In addition, also read through and clarify any additional clauses that the employer may have added to the contract.
Now would be a good time, before signing the employment contract, to request for a clause that would allow you to change sponsors in future. But, be aware that not all companies have this policy.

2. Overtime dues
The Qatar Labour Law specifies that if an employer requires workers to work above the regular working hours per day, then this should not exceed 10 hours unless the work is necessary to prevent gross loss or dangerous accident or for repair/alleviation of the consequences of said loss/accident.
The compensation should not be less than the basic wage plus not less than 25% thereof.

If an employee feels their rights have been violated, they may appeal to the Ministry of Labor (MOL) by calling  44406406 or can learn more about how to file a labour complaint on its website.

Some law firms that take up labour disputes in Qatar are:

Arab Law Bureau  4483 0202
Clyde & Co.  4496 7434
Eversheds  4496 7396
Law Offices of Gebran Majdalany  4442 8899
Patton Boggs LLP  4453 2500
Sultan Al Abdulla & Partners  4442 0660

3. Mandatory benefits
An employer is required to provide the following benefits to an employee: basic salary, accommodation or accommodation allowance, annual round-trip ticket to home country, transportation allowance and the following leaves:

  • Annual leave: After one continuous year in service you are entitled to an annual paid leave period of:
    • At least three weeks if his service is less than five years
    • At least four weeks, if his service is more than five years
  • Sick leave: You are also entitled to paid sick leave. This can be availed only after completing three months in service, and a medical certificate needs to be submitted. You are due full wage if the sick leave does not exceed two weeks.
  • Others: Apart from annual leave, these are other vacation days due to you:
    • 3 working days each for Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al Adha
    • 1 working day for the Independence Day.
    • 1 working day for National Sports Day.
    • 3 working days as specified by the employer.
  • Pilgrimage leave: Muslim employees are entitled to a pilgrimage leave without pay for a maximum of two weeks once during the period of employment.

4. Gender equality
Male and female employees are required to be treated fairly and equally. There must be no discrimination in terms of their responsibilities at work or the benefits they receive.
 The only exceptions to this are the following benefits that are specified by law to women:

  • Maternity leave: Female employees can avail of this after the completion of one year of service. This maternity leave is for 50 days on full pay. It should include the period before and after the delivery provided that the period following the delivery shall not be less than 35 days.
  • Nursing period: In the year following her delivery, female employees can take an additional hour-long break during the day to nurse children. This will be included in the working hours and no wages should be deducted for this.
  • Female employees should also not be terminated from employment due to marriage or pregnancy. Though Qatar Airways was found violating this, according to recent reports.

5. End of service benefits
All employees who have completed more than one year of employment at an organisation are entitled to end of service benefits. This amount is equivalent to a 3-week wage computed on the last basic salary for every year of service completed.
This sum is due to the employee within 7 days of his last working day with the organisation.

6. Health insurance
As there is no law that mandates provision of health insurance to employees, many organisations do not provide this benefit. This is also because all residents of Qatar can avail of the government-provided health insurance service at Hamad Medical Corporation and the quality of healthcare usually tends to be better than private healthcare.
This is set to change when the national health insurance plan launched this year begins coverage of expatriates.

7. End of employment
The employer has the right to revoke sponsorship of the employee on resignation or termination or end of contract. As per law, the employer must also bear the expenses of returning the employee to his country and the employee must leave the country within seven days of being issued the exit permit. If this 7-day duration is exceeded, the employer has the right to report this violation to the police or immigration authorities.

8. Business Visa
Often employers (and employees) prefer to test the waters by bringing in staff on a business visa, before opting for a permanent work visa.
Business visas are issued to select companies. This visa is issued for a month and can be extended for two more months. You will have to exit the entry after this, and re-enter on a fresh visa.
You cannot change employment during the duration of your visa, but can reenter on another company’s business visa, provided they are on the approved list.

9. Sponsorship Change
If you wish to remain in Qatar but change employers locally, then your current sponsor must issue a ‘no objection certificate’.
You also must have stayed in Qatar for two years, before requesting sponsorship change.

10. Sponsorship Change before stamping RP
You can change your sponsorship before your residence permit is stamped, provided “the sponsored person shall not exceed legal grace period of 3 months starting from the date of entry to the country.”
The new sponsor needs the approval from “concerned authority for the recruitment from same nationality and profession.”

    • Sly

      My employer claims that the Qatar law states that during 3 months of probation, only half of the monthly wage would be given to me. I have friends who work here in Qatar and they said that doesnt happen at their companies. Its never like that in UAE where i came from but as i’m new to Qatar, I’m just baffled on how to find out if this is true or not

      • Rajeewa de silva

        Hi. I’m working in Qatar since 2011 for very famous company. According to our company rule for the resignation we have to submit one month notice period. I have given my resignation on April 18 2015. The end of service was May 2015. But my company extended my last resign as 15th July 2015. So I had to agreed with them coz otherwise they will block my three & half year gratuity. This is what they do all these time for our employees who left this organization. So since July 15 up to now I’m staying in the room waiting for there reply of benefits information. Please give some advice. Contact me through my email. rajeewa_desilva@yahoo.com.

  2. Richard

    Clarification re sponsorship change; if sponsor grants noc and and the employee has been more than 2 yrs in the company, is that really possible? Coz my understanding was you have to leave the country for 2 yrs then you can reapply. Isn’t it?

    • JustHere Qatar

      Hello Richard,
      If you have completed 2 years, and have an NOC, then you can change sponsorships.
      Please refer to this link: http://www.moi.gov.qa/site/english/departments/PassportDept/news/2011/01/03/23395.html
      Good luck!

    Hi! please i need your help.. can you help me find the provision in the Labor law which states annual round-trip ticket to home country as a mandatory benefit?

  5. Purl Joyz

    Hi. It is stated in our contract ‘no work, no pay’ which means that during holidays if we don’t work we won’t get paid. And if we go to work, we’ll get only regular pay (not overtime). Can we contest that statement even if we have already signed the contract?

  6. Karen

    This is only applicable to those working in government/ semi-government companies.

  7. Peter Pasion

    Team JH,

    What if I completed more than 2 years in Qatar and have asked my current employer for an NOC but they refused to give? Any chance for employee to change sponsorship?

    Thanks,

    Peter

  8. Madel

    In my case, I’m a husband sponsor but my company submitted my document to Ministry of Labor and they issued me a Labor Card. My question is this: “Does the company has the right not to give me an NOC if I will resigned or does it requires an NOC in order to get a new employer?” Please advise. Thanks!

  9. jorel

    Hi, if my current company cannot or wont provide any NOC, is there still a way to have a NOC?

  10. DOUBTFUL

    just for confirmation: I am working in Company through the visa or sponsorship of another company wherein I have a contract that I am being sub-contracted by them. In my contract it is stated that NOC must be given upon my request. Can my company where I am working refuse to give me NOC through my sponsor eventhough it is stated in my contract?

    Many Thanks

  11. EJIE

    Hi, last time I’ll resigned 3 months before the end of my two year contract? Is there any change to have one year gratuity? As per the labor laws regulation? My previous company said I don’t finished my two year contacts that’s why I can’t get the gratuity..is this Legal or violation?

  15. Mhartz-28

    I just want to ask the following question:

    1. As mentioned on the Qatar Labour law, it was stated that employer is obliged to pay the employee an annual leave of at least three weeks if he/she is working for less than 5 years and at least for weeks if he/she is working for more than 5 years. My question is “How do you count the three or four weeks? Is it a calendar day or a working day?”. Please clarify.
    2. I was given NOC from my previous employer and now working for a different sponsor. If for example I recieved a new job offer after one year of working to my new sponsor, is the new sponsor has the right not to give NOC to me although he was not my original sponsor?

    I hope you could help me regarding this matter.

  16. Syed

  17. cookie

    “As per law, the employer must also bear the expenses of returning the employee to his country and the employee must leave the country within seven days of being issued the exit permit.”

    Hi, on the above statement. Where can I find this in the labour law? under what section? I am resigning from my employer this december and would like to know if I should pay for my ticket going home or them. Since they said they will also not pay ticket for annual leave unless you are already two years in the company.

  18. Rodelio Abrero

    Is it legal to impose a plane ticket budget for expats. Shall i say your the excess amount will be paid by the employee deducting the ticket budget.

    ticket budget : 2500
    ticket amount : 3000

    amount to be paid by employee is 300.

    thanks

  19. nora

  20. marvin

    I was transferred here in my new company coz i have noc and having near my 4th year soon.my question is can i demand an noc from my previous employer to shift anothet company.pls help.

  21. raisy

    If the employer will not to give NOC,who will force them to release NOC? because employee don’t have enough power to force the employer to release NOC.
    Is the government the one to force the employer to release NOC or the government will not stand in between employee and employer?So if the government can not do,the NOC law is useless because several of the companies in Qatar did not follow the Law.

  22. ochoink

    Regarding the re-sponsorship. My employer does not issue “NOC” as for my knowledge. We needed to be out of Qatar for 2 years b4 we can come back and be employed for another employer. Does our/my employer do abide the law? Is there any step we can do to make them do good?

  23. Anwar

    hi..re:sponsorship change,I’ve been working now in my company over 2 years and I want to change sponsor.what if my company will not allow to issue me an NOC. Is it a mandatory?

  24. Arthur C

  26. Jude Polido

    Hi ! I worked in Qatar for more than 4 yrs. My Visa expired on the 15th of May, but I send a resignation letter to the company 1st week of March to follow the procedure that the company should be informed 1 month before leaving the company and went home. I didn’t received any compensation/benefits from the company equivalent to the said benefits as mentioned in Qatar Labor Law. I even bought my own ticket to went home since my company was keep on promising me and nothing happened. In short, I didn’t received any single riyal benefits from my company and I was the one bought my ticket home.

    Thanks a lot.

    I need your advice…

  27. Incredible points. Great arguments. Keep up the amazing work.

  28. Respected Madam,

    I recently joined Doha Bank Qatar in August 2013. Before signing contract bank not guide me about the visa policies of family residence visa. After signing contract and joined the bank i come to know that i am not eligible to get family residence visa because my salary is less then 10000 Riyals. I am appointed at around 8500 salary. I resigned from my job and exit from the country. Bank miss-commit on my appointment. I request them to accommodate me. But there is no cooperation. IF i want to launch a complain against them. What will be the procedure.

  29. Khalid

    Is it also applicable in government agencies?

  30. Francis

    Hi. I just want to ask if there is still a possibility to claim my unpaid salary, leave salary, and ESB if my sponsor had asked me not to go back to Qatar and extend my vacation indefinitely? I’ve transferred to another country already and still thinking on how to claim what is due for me.

  31. tariq ibrahim

    This is Tariq Ibrahi. you give me very short answer of my query. I can’t understand. please give detail. thanks.

  32. jeffrey

    is the NOC issuance is sponsor / employer right only? how am i entitled to get NOC? most of the company is not giving NOC if they have incoming projects or if they have place / slot on another project for them to transfer an employee. i am working on my company for almost three years.

  33. ecarg

    my question is, what do you mean local hire? because in my situation is i was hired here in qatar i came here thru business visa, now that i submitted my resignation they refuse to give me NOC as per my understanding I am locally hired because i was hired here in qatar. am i right or wrong? can i oblige them to give me NOC?

  34. Philip

    Hello Sir!

    I decided to leave out company accommodation and I am staying now with my sister. I’ve tried to demand to have it, but they’ve said… Accommodation & Transpo allowance is only for married employee.

    Is this true?
    Can I pursue to demand accommodation & Transpo Allowance?

    Thank you! and More Power!

  35. sujith

    Sir,
    My work permit was expired on 28th September 2013.My company didn’t renew it.So how many days can stay in Qatar without work permit.How can I avoid the police arrest.

    • sujith

      Where i can see the answer of my question?

  36. Nada

    My husband has been working in Qatar for 11 years and for the same company. Because they are closing down and because of verbal and physical abuse on their part, He submitted his resignation. We need your input on these issues:
    1- Is his gratuity calculated from 2005 only (because that’s when the law was reinstated), or since his employment in 2003?
    2- Can they refuse to give him an NOC?
    3- If they refuse to give him an NOC, what can he do to object and get an NOC?

    Thank you for all that you are doing to help all the workers in Qatar.

    Is it legal that the previous month unpaid overtime can be converted by the company into an offset of holidays even it is not on the contract and without any consultation or agreement with the employees? Please advise.

  42. Wendy

    Hi Sirs/Madam,

    Could anyone help me if how you would know if your visa is non-transferable or transferable?

    In case of non-transferable visa, is there a chance that you could apply another company in Doha even if you have NOC?

    Appreciate your kind and positive response.

  43. yalla

    I think the article left out one very important factor. Under the rules of KAFALA, every foreign employee must get permission from their Qatari sponsor before being allowed to leave Qatar, for any reason.

    This rule can easily be used by a corrupt employer to blackmail you…Can you accept the risk of being trapped indefinitely in Qatar as in the case of French footballer Zahir Belounis (to name only one)?

    I urge every expat to consider this before taking up employment in Qatar.

  46. Bidur

    I am working in a company. I am getting 3 months basic salary in completing of every 2 years i.e. 2 yrs contract as a settlement. Again I am getting some amount yearly as a bonus.But as the name of gratuity, I don’t get from the company. My question is: If I ask for the gratuity, the company is compelled to pay or not?

  47. hi
    i just want to ask if i really need to pay to my company because i resigned this december 2013. im just 11 months in my company.and they want me to pay for the one month left before i get one year in my job wich i didnt finish.

  48. sheem

    Hi
    i came to qatar just 2 months ago with a sponsor that sponsor gave me a no objection letter then i have just joined a another company.still i have not taken the finger print or medical but company changed my visa as under company for 3 months.now can i go to another company?please advice me.

    • assirren

      Hi Sheem! I think we both have the same situation. can you give me some updates what happened about it?
      I am also a local hired. I was under a family Visit visa before i enter a company. My Visa was transferred to working visa under the new company but i didn’t do the medical, fingerprint and no contract signed yet, no RP stamped to my passport. After 1 month, I decided to resign because of valid reasons which my employer understood. They promised to give me NOC provided that I can find another job within 3 mnonths since i didn’t have the RP yet and that’s the grace period in my visa. My question is, will it be hard for me to find a job in my case?

      Thanks and I appreciate anyone who will give a reply..

    I was locally appointed in one of the largest private company in Qatar in 2011 as Mechanical Engineer. Recently I have been transferred to different location and asked to work in Sales Department, which is not at all my field of interest nor experience. What to do when Management is forcing me gently to accept this responsibility? There is no paper work given by the company to change my job profile or location.

  58. waiter

    Hi good day.
    I have been working for the span of 6 months in Qatar.
    I am working as a restaurant waiter.
    In my offer letter it stated that I am to work 48 hours a week and I am entitled to 1 day off a week. But somehow these terms are violated. I am working 84 hours a week and if I take a day off that would be cut from my salary. And I still don’t have my PATAKA and still haven’t had my medical. And the work is just too much.
    I am planing to complain my situation and my other fellow workmates. I would like to complain in the hopes of getting a release from the company. Do I have a big chance on these?
    Please do let me know about your insights.
    Thank you so much.

    Greetings,

    i am more interested regarding the healthcare system in private companies,
    my company’s contract states that in healthcare it is “as stated/required by the Qatar Law”
    so what exactly is the meaning of it? can i find it in the Labor law? so i can enforce or
    suggest to them that healthcare is needed?

    the company is not paying for our medical bill, they are not eve providing proper transportation
    for the employee to go to the clinic/hospital.

    i want to know in what extent is the company will provide in health for the employees.

    One more, the QATAR LABOR LAW says every year a person should have 1 free ticket vacation, but in the contract it says every 2 years.

    my question is, which is the absolute or may i say which one should be followed?
    Thank You.,.

  68. ANP

    Hi,

    I need urgent advice

    I resigned on 21/10/2013 from my job due to
    1. influence of Management to signed unfair new agreement,asking for original professional certificates to keep under their custody,
    2. Salary increments agreed at the time of Interview (orally)
    3. Management expectation and influence to work on Fridays,Public holidays, every day till 10pm or more where no transport to accommodation and food is not provided.
    4. Employment agreement signed (due to influence)shows my position as Cashier while my Offer letter was Accountant. They promised at the time of interview to give me a Professional Visa.
    5. I found an opportunity out side Qatar. It was quite better offer. I had some personal issues at home too.

    So finally I place my resignation and same was accepted and I was informed that they can release by first week of Dec-2013 my resignation date given was 21-11-2013. Considering management request I agreed to leave in first week. Same time I promised my future employer I will joint with them 9/12/2013. But they didn’t release me. I requested any postponed my expected future opportunity till 21/12/13 it was the maximum. Same was informed to management.
    But till the date they didn’t release me. on 15/2/14 they recruited new. They didn’t release me and I lost my future expected job.

    Now management informed me they are going to send me at any time new employees work progress satisfactory. I requested time till 15/3/14 because my one year complete on 15/3/14. Management telling me since I resigned I am not eligible for any benefit (gratuity, Leave salary, Air ticket, Even go now or after one year completion)

    Is the above issue is negligible under Qatar Law? Can’t I do any thing to get my right. Please help me

  70. rrs

    I worked with a local company for three years and three months. My sponsor did not pay me salary of eight months and leave benefits as well. I got job in some other company and to get NOC, my sponsor asked me to sign on the papers prepared by him that I have received my salary and leave benefits. I did that because my sponsor is a high profile local person. This case is around two years old but was curious, if that amount can be claimed?? I can prove my case because he hid not give me any payment by cheque or cash and he always made payment to employees through cheque.

  71. Vikas

    Hi,

    I joined a contracting company on 17th December 13. Till date (24 feb. 14) I have received salary for only December 13 month. There are some financial problems back in my home country for which I have to interest @ 1500/- QR per month.After many requests company is not paying me . So I have decided to leave this company.But as per the existing employees experience company is not leaving employees after the completion of notice period. So can ask them for compensation for the delayed days.Also there is no guaranty to get job immediately .I may have to wait for 2-3 three months for another job. So can I ask this company for more 3 months compensation. Getting no salary on time is increasing my tension & also disturbing me mentally. Can u please advise me in this matter to leave this company immediately & get my compensation without any deductions.

    Hi,
    Would I be entitled to sick leave payments as per the Labor law of Qatar, I was obliged to go for medical checkup in my home country; note that I have medical reports. (I had to leave Doha for further checkup and assurance as my case was critical). I had to be absent for 33 days.
    Or the moment you leave for sick leave out of Qatar then the sick leave rule will not be applied.
    Kindly acknowledge,

  109. Hello ma’am/sir. I just want to ask what is the possible things I need to do to go back in Qatar. I worked in Qatar less than 3 years and I resigned this April 2014. Now I wanted to go back in Qatar is it possible for me to go back in Qatar as a tourist visa Only? And at the same time is it ok for me to pay my NOC at the company I worked in before so that I can get my release paper for me to find another job..

    Dear All,

    I have been working in Qatar for 1 year and 11 months now … i resigned on 1st July 2014 and my Contract duration is 2 years and will expire on 07 August 2014.

    I had some problems at work here in Doha and i decided to leave the company. I resigned giving 2 months advance notice as my Contract states that advance notice should be minimum 1 month. However, my manager is asking me to leave even before that and asked me to put 1 month instead of 2 months.

    The question here is. Am I legally allowed to give 2 month period prior leaving the company and be paid for ? or 1 month is the legal notice period ? … Second Question, Is the Employer allowed refuse my 2 months notice and ask me to replace it by 1 month ?

    Hi!
    I just wanted to ask, is there any possibility to get your rights (gratuity) while your outside QATAR?
    I was on my vacation for one month and unfornately i decided to resign while i am on my country.

    If i will ask the employer, is it possible to demand my rights?

    This kind of concern, is it mentioned on QATAR LABOR LAW?

    • Arvey

      YEs and No.
      Yes if your employer is kind enough.
      No because you breached your contract with them.

    On the Bases in Qatar there appears to be an open display of violation of Qatar law- Why has there been one visit by the Labor Ministry to gather the list of the Sub contractors on the bases and inspect their violations of law. Working hours. vacations,sick days and the refusal to provide end of service. Do you know how many employees never receive their end of service and the employers local qatar sponsor have no idea that the companies are taking millions of riyal by not paying vacation and end of services? Do you how many american and UK workers were for local company do not even know the theft of these companies. Ask a company with under 30/40 employees to provide you a list of employees for just two years and ask to see the list of those that worked a year or more and BE SHOCKED OF THE NUMBER THAT NEVER received end of service[0],vacation,overtime paid,worked overtime during Ramadan. Why the ministry does not do surprise inspection on our bases? We could name the local subcontractors working for the had full of construction companies but will not because hopefully someone will come to the military base and inform the law and zero tolerance for harming even americans.

  118. Dear Sukanya,

    Can you please give advice if you know if a positive blood test for hepatitis C will result in a visa refusal for working in Qatar or if they even test for hepatitis C these days. The job I have been offered is in the oil and gas industry as a technical specialist working a 28day on/28 day off rotation.
    Your kind advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated as there are conflicting blogs on most sites.

    Dear Ma’am,
    Good Morning, I resigned last July 31st 2014 but my company did not pay my final settlement immediately before leaving Qatar, A lot of emails I’ve sent to our ranking officials before they finally deposit my settlement to my account in AHLI BANK QATAR after almost 2 months. My problem now is I’m out of Qatar now and my ATM card is retained by one of ATM machine because my trusted friend who I give my ATM card in order to transact if ever our company will deposit my settlement made a mistake and encoded a wrong PIN 3 times. I call the costumer service of the bank and explain to them what happened they told me to write a letter requesting the branch to transfer my money to my bank here in phillippines but first I need to call my branch. When I call my branch and explain they told me they can’t do anything with my situation. Please help me what I need to do? Thank you in advance hoping your advice ASAP.

    Hello. I am planning to file a case against my employer. I only have an offer letter which i signed and accepted already and returned the copy to them. I was promised a contract,but it did not happen. I already started with them after coming from my vacation, after more than a week they advised me not to come on duty until such time that my license is ready. I already have a license to practice but needs to be changed to another scope. I was willing to work while waiting for the licence change but they did not allow me to go on duty. It took about more than 4 months for the licence change, when i told them it was ready and asking them when can i start working, they told me that the position was already taken. I was so upset because there was no notice of any sort. They just dropped me like a hot potato. During those times while i was waiting for the licence change, i was going to the workplace whenever they want to call a meeting and update me on the status of my licence. I did not receive any salary from them. Can i file a case against them? Is this a breach of contract without a contract but only an offer letter. Thanks, hoping for a quick response.

  168. Hi, I took my vacation After 2 years of service last may 2014 then delivered my baby last November 3 2014. Unfortunately, my father died last December 19, 2014; so after my maternity leave I ask our clinic if I can have emergency leave for 15 days to see my father in Philippines and assist his funeral. They allowed me to leave but without pay for 15 days and I provided my own ticket. Now I want to take my vacation this coming October 13 and they told me I must take my vacation After a year from my last leave. I think vacation or annual leave is different from maternity leave? What if within the same year I took my vacation and my maternity leave is there any problem for my succeeding annual leave so they can provide my ticket and paid leave too? Thanks a lot

  170. recarte

    Good day can I ask question. Because our company said that if we resign for example,our cut off for the month is the 15th and if we resign on that day. They only give 15days of working payment not the whole month. Our H.R said that from the 16th to 30th they only give the overtime if we have because it is being paid. How come it is being paid which is our cut off for the month is on the 15th. Is there any legalities on this matter we can raise?thank you and more power. Please reply on my email. recarte_deleon@yahoo.com.

    Hi,

    Please help…

    I am planning to leave Qatar for another GCC country and will be cancelling my residence visa with my current employer. My wife and 10-year old kid is under my sponsorship. Since the new company who will hire me requires me to transfer immediately, it pose a problem for my family since the kid is still in school and has 3 to 4 months to finish. Also, we need to dispose lots of household things including a car, cancellation of water/electricity, phone, etc. and this may take at least a month or two.

    I was hoping that I could travel alone and leave my wife and kid for 2 or 3 months just to clear and finalize everything that is needed. Their visas are still good for another 2 years. Can we do that? I was told that once my visa had been cancelled, it also automatically cancels the dependents. Can you clarify this for me please?

    hello good day,

    im here in qatar since oct to work as a nurse. my employer already processed my QID and its on my hand now.my problem now is I can’t start working because of my nursing license is still on process, my evaluation was pending due to my employment status in libya before and also my employer is deducting the expenses for my Supreme council of health license. Is this my obligation to pay that expenses? is this legal? and my employer said to me that if ever my evaluation needs further nursing training she will give me only the minimun and extend my contract for another year, I already signed my contract for 2years only. First of all they are the one who get me here and all I know that everything is ok. I want justice for this matter. please give me an advice. I have the option also to go back to the Philippines if that will happen but im thinking if who will shoulder my airfare.

    Dear friends,

    I, Prabakaran have been selected by an reputed company in Qatar. When they tried to apply Work visa for me, it come to know that there is one business visa had been approved in my name. But the visa is not yet printed by the sponsor. So I am doubting that someone has misused my passport and taken the business visa in my name. Now I have to find that visa’s sponsor to deal with them regarding my isse. Because due to this existing business visa, my comapny couldn’t take the work visa for me. Please help me to sort out this issue friends. Is there any way to find the sponsor of business visa?

    Hi, my friend he wants to come in a business which gives out NOC on a later part. He is ready to come to Qatar but as per his current situation in home he can’t bear to shed more money he was looking for a business work visa which the company or the travel sponsor can provide the NOC, where he can work and with no problems and the visa should be affordable price as well..later if he is not interested in the job he can quit any time by transfering his visa to other company.
