Do you know what your Qatar ID number means?
Have you ever wondered what your 11-digit Qatari ID number means? Did you think they were just a random set of numbers?
If you thought they were arbitrary, you are wrong. There is a logic behind it, a system that would let government officials figure out your age and nationality just by looking at the ID number.
Now here's the "secret".
Now that you have read this post, you can guess a person's age and nationality if you have their QID number. Now you've got a piece of information that you may use to impress your friends.
All you need to probably memorize is the list of country codes. Qatar uses ISO 3166 for numeric country codes.
For the list of numeric country codes see: List of the Numeric Country Codes

@nabilla - please try to read. it is already mentioned above.
how to know 5 last numbers? please contact me. it's too important
My country code is wrong in the ID. It says 280 but there is no 280 in the list! However, they got my nationality right although they put the name of the country instead. I was the fifth person who entered Qatar at my age in 1995. I didn't expect Qatar to get anything right!
hmm cool..i wont forget my Qid anymore :) lol..
Thanks for the useful information, but the countries code seems to be inaccurate as after checking the list of country codes it's not tallying with my QID.
Last 5 digits mean the sequential number in that year RP issued or does it mean the nth person of that nationality in that year of birth. I think it is only the sequential number. Otherwise ID will be sequential like 28035600001 to 28035699999 which is incorrect - It is not that sequence
