Commercial bank is the best in qatar
If you wish to make international bank transfers, you could do so through other channels such as Western Union, ExpressMoney etc. There are several of them around. The exchange rates offered by banks are somewhat on the higher side. Also, with banks it takes slightly a bit longer for the money to reach its destination.
When you land here, do a bit of leg work to find out what suits you best. Banks such as Doha Bank and Commercial Bank have some branches that are open in the evening hours, and also on Fridays which is the weekly off day here.
Hey, thanks for your reply.
"There is nothing much of banking needed"? I need to make international bank transfers, for example, and I am also considering investing in real state investing trusts. Therefore, for me, is not just about getting paid in a Qatari bank.
I've been reading great things about Doha Bank.
One just cannot label any bank in Qatar as "the best bank". Most banks provide quality service. You will need a bank account to receive your salary. So, there is nothing much of banking needed. There are two banks which are very popular because they have many branches spread all over Qatar. They are: Doha Bank and Commercial Bank. You could use either of them. They provide good service to their customers.
