I have been searching in GOOGLE regarding the rules of Qatar for a visit visa holder for delivery in Hamad Hospital, but the sad thing is that i cant find only abt delivery in it..........could someone tell me in details the formalities and rules...is husband required in qatar at the time of delivery, or is father just ok..????? .....and as am in visit visa, i dont hv a health card as such......
A quick response will be highly appreciated
de ja vu .... didnt u post this sometimes back. To go to Hamad Hospital you will need a health card in order to obtain a treatment. And in order to obtain a health card you will need a copy of your RP.
if you really want to deliver in Qatar ... i guess you will have to go private like Al Ahli or doha Clinic. Youwont need a health card but might be ask for marriage certificate.
wht abt the cost in Hamad or Al Ahli hospital..?
my friend delivered through c section in al ahli cost her over 13.000 QR with few days stayed.
and do u knw the cost for a normal delivery..???
I thnkyou for the quick response
dont take my word on that, but most hospital normally normal delivery is half of the C section.
thankyou so much......if you could please get me some details of Hamad hospital abt delivery, i would be very thankful to u........
i do dilivery here on visit visa in 2004 and they charged 1700 at that time,now about charges i.ve no idea
first of all you should make health card of your area health center and remember keep your visa copy during making the health card
we're deliverying in about 1-2 weeks.
don't remember the exact cost (at al ahli) but a normal delivery with 2 days in hospital will be over 7,000 QAR. episotomy adds to it. epidural adds to it.
C section is almost double.
they will ask for your birth cert, your husbands, and marriage certificate.

I have a friend who had come to Qatar on a visit visa in 2006 and had to visit ( Hamad hospital) HMC emergency as she was having some pregnancy related problem. She did not have a RP or a health card.
She was admitted immediately at the hospital and ultimately had a cesarean section at HMC. However since she did not have a health card she had to pay for the hospital charges which came to around QR 13000 in total. The charges for normal delivery are ofcourse much lower.
She had come to Qatar to spend some time with her husband who had an RP in Qatar. I however do not know if u are able to avail of treatment if you are under fathers sponsorship.
I thnkyou very much for the response.......i need all the information about constraction company in qatar pla send me the name and phone no.
