Dear Sheen Services,

As you mentioned that some are able to save there other GCC visa, what is the criteria for that, Is there any legal rules how to keep 2 GCC residents permit.

Dear Vladimer Magallanes Sir,

Thanks for the info.

Is this latest rule because we have seen people come in from different GCC visa but will get cancelled only upon getting Qatar permanent residence permit.

Some are even able to save their other GGC visa.

once you enter in Qatar Immigration in Airport with a Qatar Entry visa, it will automatically cancelled your visa in KSA like what happened to me....you must have only 1 RP in all GCC.....

Dear Sir,

As KSA permanent resident visa is pasted on your passport, Qatar Immigration will question you and many times they don't give Qatar permanent resident visa.

I don't think that would be possible. You may have to cancel the Saudi Iqama to get a Qatar ID.
