Qatar launches new e-service to change residency from family to work

Different ministries in Qatar have been doing a lot to make their services fully digital, thereby making them more accessible and helpful to people.

On Wednesday, the Ministry of Labour (MoL) unveiled a new fully digital service — Request to Join the Labour Market (Change from Family Residency to Work Residency).

The service is tailored to support private enterprises in Qatar. The new service will make it simpler for companies to hire local residents, instead of having to spend money and resources to recruit from abroad.

At the other end of the spectrum, it will help residents gain more employment opportunities and enable them to participate more actively in the local labour market.

The new service was unveiled during a seminar for entrepreneurs, organised by MoL in collaboration with the Qatar Development Bank (QDB).

“The participating entrepreneurs were given detailed information about MoL services, with special focus on two services — Request to Amend Occupations on Work-Permits and Attestation of Work Contracts,” Salem Darwish Al Muhannadi, Head of Work Permits Section at MoL’s Employment Department, was quoted as saying by local media.

Al Muhannadi, who said the MoL added about 25 fully digital services for entrepreneurs, said it aligned with the digital transformation in the Labour sector.

“The ultimate objective is to streamline, expedite service delivery and enhance the customer journey; thereby fortifying a more efficient and effective support system for all stakeholders,” he said.

Representatives from MoL’s various departments — Work Permits, Labour Relations, Inspection, Labour Disputes, as well as the National Workforce in the Private Sector departments — attended the seminar.
