Residential addresses will soon be printed on Qatari IDs
Do you inform the police of your new address, each time you change residences?
However, according to a report in The Peninsula, a prominent lawyer said there was an existing law that mandates people to notify the police of their residential address for security and emergency reasons.
The law hasn’t been strictly enforced due to which many residents, especially expatriates, are completely unaware about the mandate. As a result, the State Cabinet has approved a new decision of including the residential addresses on the Qatari Identity (ID) card.
The new IDs will carry the holder’s postal and physical address with details like street name and number.
