I will be leaving Qatar on the 1st of Nov'10. How many days ahead can I make my exit permit ready? I have heard that its valid for a week only, is it true?
Also, I am the sponsor for my 6 month old kid. Do I need to make a exit permit for him too if he is to leave Qatar with me?
Yes. Exit Permit is only valid for a week. Your dependents do not need exit permit as you are their sponsor. You will need an exit permit from ur employer.
hope that helps.
It is better to take 2-3 days before departure. For dependent/family, no exit permit is required.
Thanks for the information both of you. It helps very much.
