Moving to Qatar

Primary tabs

Qatar has a relatively high standard of living and many expatriates find living in Qatar a very different experience from anything they had expected or what they have been used to.

None the less almost all expatriates enjoy what Qatar has to offer. Exciting job opportunities and equally promising salaries together with the attraction of the country make Qatar an enticing place to settle down.

Finding a job is not always that easy as all expatriates require sponsorship to work and live in Qatar. The safety, warm weather and family orientated environment further entice those seeking similar lifestyles and weather.

There are several fine resorts and beaches strategically placed along the 565 km coastline to choose from. You won't find any difficulty in balancing the work - play environment effectively.

There are many good furnished and unfurnished apartments to choose from and finding accommodation is not that hard. Depending on your circumstance either the company sponsoring will assist or the many estate agents will be more than willing to assist.

There is no shortage of entertainment- shopping, restaurants, cinemas and bowling alleys. A generous blend of café’s, nut shops and divine bakeries make Qatar an exciting country to relocate.

Qatar is expanding rapidly but the growth is not overwhelming as it still offers a vibrant yet peaceful pace of life.

    Hi guys. I currently live in the UK and I am looking for a school for the Grade 9/Year 10 slot.

  3. Northgate Villa

    Hi, I will be coming to Doha for a few months, and my employer reserved a villa at Northgate. Is this the same as the Ain Khalid compound? I can only find one vague reference linking Northgate and Ain Khalid on the internet, and hope someone can enlighten me where exactly it is.

  4. Moving from Riyadh to Qatar

    I'm working in Saudi, maybe taking a job in Doha. The question is, how difficult / costly is it to bring my car with me into Qatar with me and register it there?
