Unused Work Entry Visa Cancellation

By john-paul421

I have been issued with a work entry visa (Type: Work-Yearly Resident) from a company in Qatar even though I did not signed the job offer letter. I did not proceed in joining them because I backed out due to some pressing personal issues. I did not left my country and the visa is not stamped in my passport. The entry visa will expire next month.

Now, there is a new company in Qatar with a much better offer interested in recruiting me but they could not apply for my visa because I have an existing visa from the previous company. They advised me that even if it expires, the entry visa still needs to be cancelled by the company that issued it.

My question/s is this:

How can I cancel this entry visa? Can the new company request directly to the immigration office on my behalf the cancellation of the entry visa issued by the previous company? Do I have to write a letter to the previous company requesting them to cancel the entry visa they issued to me? I do not know the procedure, rules & policy regarding unused work entry visa cancellation.

What happens with the unused work entry visa when it expires? Does it automatically cancels since I did not used it in the first place (I did not entered Qatar)?

What happens with the issued work entry visa if the person did not enter Qatar? What does companies do if the issued work entry visa is not used and expires? Are they going to cancel it?

I desperately need advise. I think there are many of us here who are in the same situation like mine.

Thanks!

Dear Sir john-paul421,

I would like to ask if you have solve this problems of yours, since i have now the same situation. Did you get new visa from another employer after the old visa had expired sir? or is there necessary procedures before you get the new visa?

I appreciate well your response on this matter. Thank you.

Dear Sheen Services WLL,

Mine is a case of unutilized/unused work entry visa (I did not entered Qatar). I think work entry visa EXPIRATION and CANCELLATION are two separate things.

After the expiration date, I need my work entry visa to be cancelled. Who are going to initiate this cancellation process: my new employer/sponsor or the previous employer ?

With my case (unutilized work entry visa), I do not know exactly if it automatically cancels itself once it expires or not.

Again, I highly appreciate your invaluable assistance to this issue.

Thanks.

Dear Sheen Services WLL,

Yes it will expire after 6 months. Will it automatically cancels?

The entry visa has to be cancelled even if it expires in order for my new employer/sponsor to be able to apply for new entry visa.

If it will not automatically cancels, should the new employer/sponsor be the one now to request the cancellation or is it still the previous employer?

Your invaluable advise to this query is deeply appreciated.

Thanks.
