"OK to Board" Message on Ticket PNR?

Hi,

I'm from India and have received a copy of work visa from my employer. My employer asked me to book the ticket and will reimburse once I reach Qatar. When I booked the ticket with Qatar Airways, I was told that my employer has to contact Qatar Airways in Doha and ask them to update the ticket PNR with the message - "OK to Board". Otherwise, I will be stopped from boarding the flight in India. Is this true? Thanks.

yes it is... the travel agent will do it and only when this has been done will you be allowed to board the aircraft....
Basically your employer varified your visa with local Qatar Airways agent here in Doha. This is the only way ticket agent in Indian can be sure that you have valid visa to travel and they can issue a ticket. Thats all.

travel agent from the company who hired you must contact qatar airways in order for you to board the aircraft
