Infant tourist visa given instead of new born visa
Recently i bring my kid who is less than 6 months old. As per MOI website infant with less than 6 months can avail on arrival new born visa for free. but in my case they have given me the tourist visa which i dont know at the time of entry.
after coming out and checked in website found it is tourist visa which cannot be converted into Resident permit.
so here whenever you are showing your passport to immigration officer you have to tell him that Myself and wife having Valid RP and required the new born arrival visa.
After this within one month you need to take family visit visa @Gharaffa immigration office. We have one month free extension to tourist visa here.
after getting family visit visa ready to print you need to go to gharaffa immigration.
approach gate no 4 2nd floor where there is captain who convert the tourist visa to family visit visa (without exit the country). after that need to go to gate no 1 where you need to pay 500QAR to change the visa.
after that approach gate no 2 for taking RP.
