PLEASE HELP ME

PLEASE HELP ME

By vitalisyangme@g...

It's out of great desperation that has led me to the point of seeking for assistance on this page. I have tried all other ways within my means to no avail.

My name is Vitalis from Ghana, and I have been trying all ways and means to acquire a work visa and finally move to Qatar since February 2022. Been applying for all kinds of jobs and even contacted several recruitment agencies in Qatar for assistance, but the furthest I ever got was signing an offer letter to work as a store helper; which was 2 months ago. Unfortunately I'm still stuck here with absolutely no idea when this agency would bring me over. There are no local recruitment agencies in my country to also help with the transition. 

I even researched into getting a tourist visa when all other plans failed but I realised that the financial requirements accompanied by the rigorous process involved in getting this kind of visa was way beyond me.

Before I proceed, let me sell myself a bit :) I'm educated, really honest and responsible, fluent in the english language, can follow complex instructions and really fast at learning and grasping the concepts of whatever I am taught. 

Please if you're affiliated with or have strong ties with any company or recruitment agency in Qatar, please help me because I'm really out of options. I am readily available with all my documents intact and ready to travel. I know it's a long shot but I'm taking it anyway :)

This is my email (vitalisyangme@gmail.com) and number (+233506036384) in case you're touched and would love to assist.

I want to thank you for even reading up to this point. Please have a good day.

Hello Vitalis,

I can understand your state of desperation being a young man and without a job in hand. But then, you will need to keep many things in mind while trying for a job in Qatar.

First of all, there are many people across the world who are in a similar state as you are. They are equally desperate to better their lives and look forward to working outside their home country where the grass looks greener. So, there is some competition in the market. Remember, you are competing in a global job market.

Secondly, Qatar is a very small country geographically. While it has a very stable economy and growth rate, It does not provide that many job opportunities.

Thirdly, and you may not be aware of this, the government follows a quota system while issuing job visas. As such even if a job is available, there just may not be a work-visa available for your country.

Fourthly, your country Ghana is some distance away from Qatar. Cost of travel does count with employers and they keep this in mind. They therefore look for manpower from countries close to Qatar such as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan etc. This becomes all the more true with workers in the lower categories such as laborers, carpenters, drivers, janitors etc.

Lastly, I am by no means trying to discourage you. You must keep on trying since sending an application through email costs nothing. But you must be careful though. There are people in Qatar ready to con you or people like you who are in desperate need of a job. There is something in Qatar called "Free Visa". There are some people who sell this visa. The business is illegal. Also, there are many times such visas are simply bogus. So just watch your step, and keep your head high.
