Moving to Qatar? — what to expect
Qatar has a relatively high standard of living and many expats find living in Qatar a very different experience from anything they had expected or what they have been used to. None the less almost all expats enjoy what Qatar has to offer.
Exciting job opportunities and equally promising salaries together with the attraction of the country make Qatar an enticing place to settle down. Finding a job is not always that easy as all expats require sponsorship to work and live in Qatar.
The safety, warm weather and family orientated environment further entice those seeking similar lifestyles and weather. There are several fine resorts and beaches strategically placed along the 565 km coastline to choose from. You won't find any difficulty in balancing the work-play environment effectively.
There are many good furnished and unfurnished apartments to choose from and finding accommodation is not that hard. Depending on your circumstances either the company sponsoring will assist or the many estate agents will be more than willing to assist.
There is no shortage of entertainment—shopping, restaurants, cinemas and bowling alleys. A generous blend of café’s, nut shops and divine bakeries make Qatar an exciting country to relocate.
Qatar is expanding rapidly but the growth is not overwhelming as it still offers a vibrant yet peaceful pace of life.
