Qatar Global Immigration summary

The residence card and work visas are the usual processes for non-GCC nationals wanting to work in the country. Likewise, they are initially issued for 3 years, and they can renew it annually for 1, 2, or 3 years; this depends on the viability of the permit and the details of the applicant (nationality or type of work).

In addition, you must keep in mind that depending on the political situation and the nationality of the workers, they may not be able to renew the permits more than 5 fears. Moreover, applicants need to seek additional approval for any renewals when they are 60 years old.

After that, the sponsoring Qatari organization must have visa approval for the Ministry of Administrative Development, Social Affairs, and Labor. And they also must have an open position about the gender, professional quality, and nationality of the applicant.

If the entity does not have a previously approved visa, they can apply for it prior to the individual work visa. Thus, the individual must have a valid employment contract with the Qatari entity and it must be attested by the Ministry of Administrative Development, Social Affairs, and Labor.

Certainly, a business visa is enough for short-term activities up to 90 days, instead of a residence permit and a work visa. In other words, both the employer and the worker must check with the work site in Qatar. You may also need a gate pass for the worksite.

GCC nationals employed in the country are exempt from work visas, but they must sign a contract and apply for an ID card.

Types of Work Visas in the country

Certainly, the government and the immigration authority offer various visas for foreign nationals wanting to live and work in Qatar. Let’s observe:

  • Tourist Visa: this type of visa is offered upon arrival only. Similarly, the foreign national must collect the visa from a Qatari port after arriving in the country. However, this type of visa is available only for a few countries. Likewise, there are 2 types of tourist’s visas in Qatar:
    • Long tourist visa: 3 months.
    • And short tourist visa: 2 weeks.
  • Qatar Business Visa: if foreign nationals are working for a legal Qatari entity, they are eligible for this type of visa. But the company is responsible for obtaining this visa for them.
  • Qatar Work Visa: if the individuals worked for the same company for at least 2 consecutive years then this visa is sponsored by their company itself. Similarly, a medical screening test is performed upon arrival.
  • Qatar Visit Visa: relatives of a Qatari national are eligible for the Qatar visit visa and it is valid for 6 months.
  • Qatar Family Visa: this is different than the visit visa since this visa does not have any expiration date. Therefore, foreign nationals working in the country can sponsor their family to come and live in the country with them.
  • Qatar GCC Resident Visa: citizens of countries members of the GCC are eligible for this type of visa. But in some cases, it depends on their type of job. But, for business and employment purposes, your foreign workers need work visas.
