Travelling out and returning to qatar with NEW passport (married name) and RP/visa not updated (still in old passport)
I had my passport changed to my MARRIED NAME recently and I have to leave Qatar soon (and come back after a month) because I need to take an exam in the Philippines.
It will be a conflict to my exam date if I would update my RP and visa with my MARRIED name because the process takes roughly 2 months.
Can I fly out and enter Qatar with my new passport with married name while my RP and Visa are still in my maiden name? If so what documents shall I bring just in case I get interrogated in the immigration.
I plan to update RP and visa when I get back to Qatar after my exam.
This is a difficult question. As a layman, I don't think you will be able to leave Qatar with a passport carrying your new name as it will clash with entry made in the system and you will be likely stopped at the airport. But suggest, you discuss the matter with the captain at the passport & immigration office for best guidance. Try to avoid going to the branch at Al Gharrafa.
