HELP, URGENT VISA QUESTION FROM A STUDENT

By yugi14

Hi. So, I am a university student here in Qatar. I my visa is under my Dad's sponsorship but my Dad will have to go back to our home country so I have to go back as well. I want to countinue my study here in Qatar and the government doesn't really offer Student visa. Now, I am running out of options on what to do in order for me to stay here in Qatar and continue my studies. I am wondering if I get working visa, will I be able to continue my study here since I am turning 21 years old already. I am also born here in Qatar and I have been living here all my life. So livelihood is out of the question, and we also have family friends that lives here as well. I am really desperate for options that I can go to. Please I really need help with this.

From what you have stated, there is nothing much you can do but to just return home. You can come back on a work visa but for that you need to have a job and a sponsor. The work visa will not allow you to continue your education.

You will surely be finding yourself in difficulties back home as you will feel like a foreigner in your own country. But then these are the disadvantages of staying away from ones homeland for so long at a stretch. Gradually, you will learn to live with the realities on the ground and you will eventually settle down. Many people and families have been through this situation earlier.
