Working permit

I am here in Qatar under my husband sponsorship. Currently I just got a job and my HR ask me I need work permit. My question here is:
1- Do I need working permit since I have residence visa here n under husband sponsor?
2- Without working permit expat's wife could not work in Qatar?

Any response here would be much appreciate.

Rizks i remember Galloper was saying that even if a wife is under husband sponsorship she has to obtain a labour card in order to work.

1- Do I need working permit since I have residence visa here n under husband sponsor? yes u need its a compulsory and to apply for that u need police clearance check with ure embassy if they can give it from here otherwise get one from ure country n stamp in misitry of forein affairs then from ure embassy here, other work will b done by the PRO of the company where u work.

2- Without working permit expat's wife could not work in Qatar? she can but if she get caught by ministry of labour both company n u will pay a huge amount of 25000 and Qr more each n the company will b in trouble with ministry of labour will last for long...

3- How many % possibility that worker without working permit will get caught by MOL?

Before it wasnt that important to get labour card but after wht happend in villaio all things has changed, and now there is a big compaign going on by checking all companies by ministry of labour so all companies are nt ready to face troubles with them.

vilia

I better get it done. thx emy :)
