Work Visa

I got my work visa today and noticed that it is only valid for 3 months. To verify what type of visa was issued since it was written in Arabic, I logged on the website of the Ministry of Interior. I found out that it is a work visit visa single entry. Can anybody explain to me the difference of a work visa from a work visit visa and work permit and also a residence visa and a residence permit. What will my employer issue to me upon the expiration of my work visit visa while I am in Qatar? Thanks.

Basically you've been issued a visa that allows you to enter Qatar to take up employment. After you arrive your employer has three months in which to complete the formalities to get you a work/residence permit. A work visit visa is essentially a business visa for people who have work to do but don't intend to settle in the country. Residence permits are usually issued to non-employable residents such as minors with their family etc. However all these are interchangeable. The bottom line is what matters is getting into the country and going through the procedures for a residence/work permit. These include the obligatory medical and police registration. All are handled by the sponsor/employer.

Congratulations for getting your work visa! How long did you need to wait to finally get the work visa? I have been waiting now for nearly 4 weeks to get my work visa and I am running out of patience :-( ! Is it normal to take this much time? Thanks a lot for your help!

It is really hard to wait and wait, without knowing anything about your Visa and the date you gonna leave...as a matter of fact i work for a TV station here in Lebanon and when i got the contract from Jaz i told them that i have to go but i didnot resign. Now everyday they ask me, when are you leaving and as you know i have no damn answer... anyways still waiting abouhashem

Hi All, I today got a visa which is a work visa and allow me to enter Qatar within six months and it says it is valid for 4 years. Apparently it is a work visit visa. Please somebody clarify me, Is this valid for three months only and should my employee convert this into work visa once I visit Qatar. Should I face to a medical test. Is there a risk of not renewing this visa after three months. My ticket is also not a return ticket. Please clarify Thanx

Hi Everyone! I am in the UAE and have resigned from my job here because I received an employment in Qatar. I received my qatar employment Visa here. I will take a week vacation in manila and go to qatar directly. Will the immigration authorities in the Philippines will allow me to leave the country with a qatar employment Visa? I wish someone can help me with this one.

What do you mean by Employement Visa? There is no such thing as employement visa...it must be a Visit visa for family members,Visit visa for wives and children,Work visa under the sponsorship of companies and institutes,Work visa under personal sponsorship(servants and others..),Return visa,Tourist visa,Business visa,Multi-visit visa,Visa for companions of GCC nationals....any of the above mentioned visas requires you to undergo authentication process to Qatar Embassy in Manila, the embassy will also provide you other procedure for you to have a legal exit in our Immigration in Manila. Other option is to take the service of a travel or recruitment agency(authorized)in Manila and let them do the documentations but of course you need to payout for the service. It all applies if your point of origin is Manila, which is a lot complicated than entering Qatar from Dubai(as point of origin). Hope I made a small point.

I have the same case as natastreb. I am from Saudi and I got a visa from a company in Doha. According to the company in Doha, I could come directly to Qatar without going to the home country. I posted my inquiry at other thread and someone responded that he has the same case and was able to enter Qatar directly.

Hi Everyone! I am currently here in the UAE and have resigned from my job here because I received an employment in Qatar. However I havent receive my working visa yet not until i submitted to them the copy of my cancellation of the visa i am holding now. Suddenly i found a thread concerning the type of working visa that most of the persons having the similar case of mine only receive a visa with only 3 months validity. Is it normal? Should i be alarmed about this? Is there a risk of not renewing this kind of visa after three months? I'm about to give up everything i have here in the UAE expecting that i will be employed permanently in Qatar, So guys i need your help to clarify this things as i am a first timer to live in Qatar.. Thanks in advance!

karenclaire20

hi im from philippines and i applied in an agency working in qatar (prime foods) as food attendant.. its been two months now and my visa is not yet approved?? i want to clarify whether my agency really apply a visa for me bec. i already pay for the placement fee and have the medical already.. is there a possible for working visa to be rejected?? thank you

flor1212

so no turning back. The three months means you will undergoe the usual probationary period and if they feel or see you a potential long-term employee, you will proceed with the pocedures for obtaining a residence permit (RP) and it will be a yearly renewal for the company to handle. Karen, since you are to work in connection for food handling, maybe they will scrutinize your medical result more. But if you were already given a clearance there, then maybe it's just because of the holidays. Be patient.

how long does it take for a visa to be transfered to a new sponspor? i was here in qatar for a family visit visit,and got a job offer. will this take long? reagards

TheMuskeeter

It depends on the availability of visa of the company you will be working for. It can be a day or it can be a month. Good luck!

TheMuskeeter

Check with your agency. Sometimes, if visas are not available, then you may have to wait a little longer. As long as the visa is available, then you are good to go.
