Indian family visit visa

By Sunam

Any idea when family visit visa opens for private sectors? Many families are stuck and need to unite with their loved ones.

Hello All,

I hv been visiting MoI gharaffa for so many times. My family visa application was applied in Dec 2020 and to this date it shows under review. I told the officer in receiption to allow me to talk to the captain, may be the captain will understand the position bcoz my application is already applied and is on system.

But the officer in receiption was very rude and he makes me felt like i am begging for something which i dont deserve. He was very arrogant and disrespectful.

Meanwhile, can any one who is influential can plz check if the family resident visa for indians is going to open anytime soon?

I did check with few of my friends who are infulentian and they told soon it will be open. Problem is tjis soon is being told from 8 months

Hello Everyone..

I was following this forum for the past couple of months.I wish to share my experience regarding this and it will be helpful for at least someone, who is working in govt sector..I was trying to get family visa from last Dec and also i am working in govt sector .This is just to inform everybody that family visa is already open for govt employees. I saw applications from Hamad employees and other govt sectors they are accepting applications. I applied last week manually and after 10 days I received approval msg in metrash. At the same time visit visa is not opened even for govt employees.And for the private sector so far nothing.I hope they will open for private sector very soon. I wish everyone good luck and stay safe.

Thanks....

No, Visit visa has not been open for any employment type or nationality.

They are only providing Family Residence Visa for government employees, and that too in a limited number.

Hello All,

I have been following this visa update forum since the beginning but I didn’t comment anything or updated it whenever I visited the MOI office for a visa update( So far I have been visited MOI for visa update nearly 10 to 15 times). But today the way policemen reacted I felt bad.

I visited MOI today for a Visa update but again the same answer still visas not open for Private sectors employee. Even though if you are working in Govt sectors through private companies no visa opened. I told him many families are struck bcoz of this and we have been waiting for visa updates to unite with families and ready to comply with all govt rules and afford hotel quarantine at any cost then why govt is not giving visas for private-sector employees?

I got a rude reply to my question from the police gentlemen: “why you are standing here, I already told you there is no visa for the private sector, and check the newspaper for family visa news then come here. Additionally, he said this year private sector family visa may not be opened, you may go”.

I became angry at the way he replied to me and on the other side, I felt bad emotionally that I am begging him for the visa thing. Even I have all the required documents with me and my salary has eligible to bring the family but nothing helps out.

Anyhow, at least one person from this group got his family visa approved. Good luck brother @syed1981.

Looks we need to be more patient. Let's hope and pray to hear good news.

By Sunam• 4 months 3 weeks ago.

@VRatal : Selection of Nationality is mandatory which which u cannot submit ur application.. However if you select any nationality, application cannot be processed through Metrash currently and that is the reason MOI started accepting applications manually (For Government Companies)

By Rajaebinazer• 4 months 3 weeks ago.
Rajaebinazer

Yes , he applied for the entry residence visa only, he attached

Attested marriage certificate

Attested birth certificate of my children

Salary letter from company

Attested degree certificate

Hello guys this is an update regarding Family RESIDENCE visa

My husband today went to gharaffa immigration to apply for Family residence visa , as all we know that India is still not included in nationality column in metrash 2 app

They have manually accepted our application, and they have told to check in metrash after 4 days . They told we will receive the visa by this month. ( Note - my husband is working in government company) i am not sure whether they accept for private companies too

By VRatal• 4 months 3 weeks ago.

@By Pencil888...by u r post have u uploaded doc in metrash 2? coz when i thought of make myself ready uploading all document for getting family visa i noticed india is not in list while choosing country options in metrash2..can any one tell is it possible without opting country?

By Sunam• 4 months 3 weeks ago.
Sunam

@rajabinazer....Again the same words they are saying....come n check after 2 weeks...december.

By Pencil888• 4 months 3 weeks ago.
Pencil888

I understood that Rental agreement is not required to be attached as an supporting document while applying for a dependent visa through Metrash. Reason behind may be the address is already updated in Metrash and Immigration will ensure that there exists NO duplication..

My doubt is Do we required to submit for Manual application in Immigration as the agreement is not in my name..

If they are not opening new family visas then at least they should give some relaxations in exceptional entry permit so that we can at least visit our family in India and come back.
