are job offers from a company under qatar government take so long?

By AtoZ

is it usual that a job offer will take soooo long from a company under the umbrella of qatar government? how many weeks or months will it take after they give you the offer? and is it usual also that they dont answer emails? been waiting for 6 weeks and tried emailing but not answering. is it proper to call them or should i just wait or just forget it? just want some input. thanks..

am updating this post to say THANK YOU to the people who took time to read this and gave advice. It is so nice to have people who share your problems, fears, uncertainties and all sort of personal feelings. This site is really comforting. And after waiting for so long I am now working in this government company that i am referring here. It was worth the wait!! It was worth it, company environment and salary wise. Cheers!!!

They are probably waiting for your CID clearance to finish... I was lucky mine took 2 weeks but my colleagues waited up to a year. Good Luck
