Dear Friends

I have received lately my visa to work in Qatar

But when I compare it with my friend visa: -

Mine, type is working visa for one year, and my friend visa is residence visa

I don’t know what is the different between them, and if my visa will change to
Permanent residence when reach to Qatar or not, and if I can buy a car and bring my wife when I become married with this type of visa

Please I will be appreciating for any help!!

i have mainly the same issue , i've got a buisness visit visa , since we have a project in doha which is for 3 years renewable yearly,

but what i'm concerned id that i i don't know if it can be converted to work visa , so i can get my family, put my kids in school,......etc,

i tried to get an answer about these issue from the company,always telling me yes why not , but i did not get a clear answer,

since the contract is between me and a company(not in qatar), to be seconded to a third company in qatar to work in the project.

so my qestion is is it possible to do so.

thanks in advance for all
