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

@By VRatal or any one can please tell me that is it possible that after spending 3 months in Qatar on Family Visit Visa can we come back again on Family Visit Visa ?? Are they issuing/ approving application for the same person.

Or is there any criteria that if once u visited can't apply for some months??

Please tell if anyone has come back again & had got the approval again for Family Visit Visa and long it is taking to get approval.

family visit can be applied without cancelling family resident,

if you attached documents correctly no need to go there, if you have doubts you can visit and know the status, but generally now a days they are taking 2-3 weeks to issue visa or reject

brother you go directly to Gharaffa immigration , show your family resident visa application paper at the entrace (2 months old). then go to gate 1 reception with your visit visa application and take token thats it u will get approval.

Usually at the entrance there will be officers who check visit visa application date and dont allow people who applied witin 21 working days .

Hello All,

I want to share with you all about visa my experience, Initially I applied family residence visa but didn't get approval. So that I thought of to go family visit visa but that too shows under process for long time so i left everything and called my wife on arrival visa after her arrival i got family visa approval then I transferred arrival visa to family visit and its valid for 3 months only. Now any buddy could help me out for visa extension further?

Dear All,

I am from India & I have issued Family Visit Visa, but Bcoz of Unvaccinated kids For the red countries they are not allowing kids to enter into Qatar. my family was on Mumbai airport and at last moment while approving the Ehteraz Pre registration they Rejected and mentioned that unvaccinated minors are not allowed to enter into qatar even if u have visa, 10 days quarantine, RTPCR done with negative result, althought if you have boarding pass they will not allow without Ehteraz Pre Registration.

Please don't waste Your money for Visa, Quarantine and Tickets and all as it is very difficult to take refund from discover Qatar as is taking too long to process and even if it is not cancelled before 14 days may be it will not refund. for ticket also they will deduct 30% so any way its loss for me, no body will return that amount. kindly think twice before u are issuing family visit visa for your family with unvaccinated kids for Red list countries.

I am consultant in one of the govt company in Qatar. Last week I visited garaffa to check on my resident visa application.

Caption asked mine salary certificate, NOC, last month pay slip.

He informed for family resident visa below are the

Criteria:

1. 15k salary

2. NOC from company

3. Salary pay slip

If you have these 3 document + other documents related to resident visa for sure you will get it.

He returned my request in metrash to upload pending documents like NOC and salary certificate.

I requested him to cancel my applicantion. So I can apply the visit visa to process quickly.

I applied visit visa next day and I went to garaffa gate 1. I took token and went to counter they verified my documents and informed me to check after two days

Documents asked at counter :Application receipt, QID, MY passport, marriage certificate.

Next day my application status updated to ready to print.

They are accepting salary range above 15000 QAR. for Family Residence Visa

Hi all.,i got Visa No. for family visit visa..!!!

I had applied family visit visa on 8th Aug through Matrash with all documents, after 2 days i visited immigration and officer told me come after 2 weeks as they are processing old application.

Again i visited last Thursday 12th Aug evening around 4.30 pm, there are only few peoples in gate 1 and i got token very easily and in the counter officer checked my uploaded documents and approved on the spot and in matrash i can see the Visa no.

Any one applied visit visa with proper documents, i suggest visit immigration in the evening time.

Document required for visit visa :

1. Marriage Certificate - I'm not sure attestation is mandatory or not but i uploaded attested certificate.

2. Travel Insurance - i purchased online with QIC...https://www.qic-insured.com/Online/TravelInsurance.do it will cost 340 QR for 6 months for 1 month it will be 170 QR.

3. Inbound & outbound ticket

4. Passport Copy.

@faru, ok got it, no worries...

have you got any confirmation from anyone that unvaccinated children are "not allowed entry"

because moph red list guidlines for visit visa says only this "There is no exception for unvaccinated children coming traveling from red listed countries "

it doesnt say "entry not allowed" , it says only "there is no exception"

so confused with this, please if you have any doc or screenshot which says no entry pls share me

By Faru1992• 3 months 2 weeks ago.
Faru1992

@msoqat

It was a typing mistake.

At the moment as per moph unvaccinated childrens(technically not possible to get vaccination for children below 12 years) not allowed entry from red + other 6 countries.

By Msoqat• 3 months 2 weeks ago.
Msoqat

@faru,

yeah as you said for these 6 countries there general rules will be applied (but "red list" rules... i dont think so because we are not in red list)

and faru, please let me know how you got the confirmation from moph that under 12 (technically who cant have vaccines) children are allowed? if there is any document or screenshot can you share?

im planing to travel with my 2 years old son

Faru1992

@msoqat

No way, for those 6 countries including India the existing rules + new rules apply.

So, 2 quarantine if vaccinated in qatar for rp holders and 10 days quarantine for moph approved vaccinated visitors and also 10 day quarantine for those with rp unvaccinated/partially vaccinated/vaccinated outside qatar.

Regarding entry of children, childrens have started to get visa's. If anyone gets ehteraz pre-registration authorization for children then only we can say they are allowed or not. At the moment as per moph unvaccinated childrens(technically not possible to get vaccination for children below 12 years) allowed entry from red + other 6 countries.

By Msoqat• 3 months 2 weeks ago.
Msoqat

Good news for families (i suppose)

Qatar moph has removed India/SriLanka/Pakistan/Bangladesh etc (those 6 countries) from their "Red List countries" and these countries are not in any other lists also (yellow or green)

so for the people travelling with infants or kids there was a rule/guide which said for red list countries "There is no exception for unvaccinated children coming traveling from red listed countries" and it was so confusing too wether we can travel with infants or not in visit visas.

Now as they have removed these 6 countries from their "Red list" we are not coming under "Red list guidlines"

we (all 6 countries) has a seperate guidline from Qatar moph which says "Those vaccinated/recovering from COVID-19 in the State of Qatar are subject to a two-day hotel quarantine and are allowed to leave the hotel on the second day if the result of the PCR test is negative.

The rest of the people are subject to a hotel quarantine for a period of 10 days."

here they dont talk about Kids and all, they say rest of other people (means all other, wether kids or infants or elders) needs 10 days quarantine.

so as my understanding and finding we can travel with kids without issues. and hope they will clear the confusion about quarantine (which is still not sure if we get fully vaccinated by moph approved vaccines outside qatar it is 2 days or 10 days)

***Note - this is per as my understanding and findings and i post this to give you a hope so you can search and confirm about this. please do your home works before proceeding anything...

Hi all., I applied family visit visa with all documents (travel insurance, both way tickets, etc,) through matrash on 8 Aug 2021.

Today morning 7 Am i visited the immigration gate 1 to check the status. If matrash status is Under Process or Under review, they are not allowing to meet the captain and they told to go through reception.

There was a long que for getting token in the reception, i stand in the que wait for my turn. Finally the officer in the reception saw my application date and told me to come after 2 weeks.

What i understood they are issuing token for the applications applied minimum 2 ~ 3 weeks ago.

If anyone managed to meet the caption or get the token within 1 week of application., please advise.

@thwisha

As you are vaccinated with covishield, its a bit tricky situation even if you stay in other countries and I am not sure whether quarantine is required or not.

Regarding kids entry, even if you get visa and still come from red countries they will be denied entry.

The thing is that only after getting ehteraz pre-registration authorization, one's travel to qatar is guaranteed!!!

By thwisha46@gmail.com• 3 months 3 weeks ago.
thwisha46@gmail.com

@govindaraju KrishneGowda

What about quarantine for people who are vaccinated from India but living in a country other than these 6 countries? Like dubai Maldives etc for more than 10 days.

Is the quarantine based on where people are coming from, that is these 6 countries OR based on people vaccinated from qatar or India?

Also what about kids entry?

I Just called to MOPH hotline no 16000, they have told me that, fully vaccinated inside Qatar must go 2 days quarantine.

Fully vaccinated with MOPH approved vaccine outside Qatar i'e IN, PK, PH, SL, BL, NP, must go 10 days hotel quarantine.

This rule is applicable for only these 6 countries.

For other countries General Policy applicable as per red, yellow & green category.

Kindly advice me in this, My wife took two doses of covishield in india(Which is approved by MOPH) and am planning to bring her in visit visa, so the quarantine hotel booking is for 2 days or 10 days?

Some one have any idea in this. because am planning to go india and bring her here so while returning back for me it is 2 days quarantine and for her is 2 days or 10 days am not clear in this.

What i should do in this case?

@faru, Yeah that makes sense.. I hope that final decision is taking by moph and even the final approval will be given for ehtheraz by moph.

So i hope they will approve kids also. Because there is no reason why infants cant travel to qatar when there is no any vaccinations for them and they will be coming with a negative PCR and even after landing there will be one more PCR and again after 2 days one more PCR will be there even for kids, so there is no any sensible reason not to allow infants and kids, and may be that is the reason they have not mentioned as "entry not allowed" but said "there will be no exception"

So i hope as a quality public health government body, they will approve infants with fully vaccinated parents.

And to confirm that, is there anyone who got the visas and got the final approval from ehtheraz for their kids?

@msoqat

The thing is that when you call those numbers, each person will say different different things. So, if you get reply by mail atleast you have a proof. And ultimately no one will be allowed to board the flight unless or untill he has the ehteraz pre-registration authorization!!!

@faru

Yeah i heard that some got replys on hukoomi as entry not allowed, but the moph doesnot say entry not allowed.

The thing is lotof misunderstanding going over here with the word "exception"

Moph clearly say there is no exception (the meaning of it is there will be no special permission or chances)

Even some of embassies has said entry not allowed. But when called to 109 or 16000 they say entry is allowed for kids for some people.

Even in the last update on August 12, there is a misconception, people say only vaccinated inside qatar have 2 days quarantine and others need 10 days quarantine.

But the thing is it should be 2 days quarantine for everyone who is fully vaccinated with moph approved vaccines (because wherever you get vaccination its going to be same bit to bit. If you take pfizer, its same in qatar and its same in india also, so it should be fine)

By Msoqat• 3 months 3 weeks ago.

@vamsi

Yeah i think it must be that.. it is allowed but not published clearly.. they just say there is no exception (they dont say not allowed)

Which means red list kids have to undergo through bsame procedures as their parents..simple as that...

Ya i also heard lotof people got confirmations from 109 and 16000 as redlist kids can travel on visit visas

Hi everyone,

This is for all the people who wants to take their kids with them.

For family visit visas for kids from red list countries (india,bangladesh, srilanka etc)

Moph says "There is no exception for unvaccinated children coming traveling from red list countries"

It doesn't say that they are not allowing entry for them, they just say there will be no exception (acception & exception both are 2 different words)

1.For Green list kids there is an exception - which is they can go home without quarantine

2. For yellow list kids there is an exception - which is they only have to stay 7 days at hotel quarantine

3. For Red list kids - there is no exception which means there will be no special chances so they need to do full hotel qurantine.

As my understanding this might be the process. (If they really dont allow kids from red list countries, they would have mentioned it clearly as kids are not allowed)

And on a youtube video (as i remember info gulf channel) youtuber has said he personally talked to 16000 number and some other number and got confirmation that red list kids are allowed on visit visa and he stated some of his friends also got the confirmation.

And there were some other people said it can be done, im not sure about these comments on other people.

Have you got any kind of news or confirmation?

@By samlawrence : I have checked that already but when i enquired with QA and with 109 they were saying it is allowed and but it has not been published anywhere.

From 109/16000 They said that infants can follow the same regime as mother and hotel quarantined for 2 days coming from india if fully vaccinated with Qatar approved vaccines.

By samlawrence• 3 months 3 weeks ago.

@vamsiparimisetti - If you check in the travel and return policy of MOPH in group B it is clearly given for the red country children. i.e. There is no exception for unvaccinated children coming traveling from red listed countries. Hope i am clear to you. Soon things will turn it out. Hope for the best.

Salamk,

I went to immigration dept gate 1 today, was very hard to get a token as the receptionist rejected many people with same request saying to come after 3 weeks.

But luckily I got a token , when I went to counter the clerk verified the documents I have uploaded in the system and said it’s under process.

Now I have a visa number, but the status is still under process and no option for fee payment available yet.

Has anyone paid the visa fee or got the visa approved?

Anyone plz clarify my problem..

Can I travel with my 1 year baby in on arrival visa..I'm from India.. is there any other possibilities ..

By thwisha46@gmail.com• 3 months 3 weeks ago.
thwisha46@gmail.com

Is visa on arrival allowed for indians if we come to qatar after spending 10 days in a green country or yellow country?

Can Indian babies under 2 years come on visa on arrival If coming from a GREEN country? (that is after spending 10 days in green country?)

Is it not possible to avoid 10 days quarantine in qatar if we and our baby under 2 yrs comes to qatar on resident visa after spending 10 days in Maldives? (though it is a red country, it is not one of the 6 countries for which quarantine was reintroduced)

I am fully vaccinated with covishield.

Please provide info. and other possible options to reach qatar as soon as possible and avoid quarantine. Whether I should take resident or visit visa or visa on arrival. I have an under 2 year old baby with me. We will be coming with my husband who is fully vaccinated from qatar.

My subject is regarding " visit visa" not resident visa. Regarding insurance, it is better you take in combination of health & travel. No idea about kids.

It depends on your approach, based on that they will issue token. Best luck

By SIVAKUMAR SIGIREDDY• 3 months 3 weeks ago.
SIVAKUMAR SIGIREDDY

@pandiperumal

I went yesterday, at the main gate you need to show QID & ehteraz. Once you enter you can see Gate no 1 on the left side. You should head towards reception for token. Just tell him you had applied visit visa 2 weeks back, and want to know status. He will issue token. Go to the counter & hand over QID, just take documents in case, but they dint asked me. They will inform whether it is approved or not. Once it is approved you can get visa number displayed in metrash

I had uploaded travel insurance taken from Qic. Thats fine.

You can go anytime, sun to thurs before 5pm

Hello, my family visa was submitted and is currently under process. I am wondering if it is best to come on a tourist visa with my kids and then go out when my family visa is approved. I am thinking about this option because my country was a green country and since yesterday the country is yellow. If we go red I will be stuck in France because my kids are too young to be vaccinated. FYI my husband is working for a petroleum company.

I have applied family residence visa for my wife on 5th July via Matrash. after 2 days status was Deferred and in the comments mentioned refer to Immigration. on 7th July i visited Gharaffa Immigration. The officer who issuing the token told me to come after 14th Aug.

After few days there was a news of issuing family visa from 12th July. I visited Gharafa immigration on 12th July Morning. The officer told me come after eid.

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....

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.

Dear All ,

Today I have visited immigration at Gharafa . They have told us that Family RP is open for govt sectors only . Private sector so far no update they said .

noddy2711

I went today to gharaffa immigration and they again told that family residency is still on hold for private company employees.

My wife and son is with me in Qatar but still they are not processing.

My wife is on business visa and son born last month in qatar only.

My company is saying that they cannot extend my wife's visa from next month.

Any suggestions what to do.

@Rajaebinazer how about a family visit visa, is it possible to apply manually in Gharaffa?. I am also working in the government sector.

By Sunam• 1 year 6 days ago.
Sunam

@rajaebinazer......Yeah for govt employees they issue visa....but not for private sector...Am still waiting to hear good news.

By Pencil888• 1 year 6 days 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• 1 year 6 days 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

Passport copies of all persons

By Rajaebinazer• 1 year 6 days ago.
Rajaebinazer

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• 1 year 1 week ago.
VRatal

@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• 1 year 1 week ago.
Sunam

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

By Pencil888• 1 year 1 week 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.
