Families of sponsored residents may enter Qatar on a short-term Family Visit Visa. However, the visa is initially valid only for one month.

Relatives who wish to stay longer than a month may undergo a physical examination within the first 72 hours of arrival to apply for an extension.

The visa can be extended for another five months for first and second degree relatives and in-laws (Father, Mother, Sister & Children) and can be extended for only two months in case of other relatives. Foreign employees who wish to bring their families to live in Qatar should refer to the Family Visa.

Application Process

Follow these steps to apply for a Family Visit Visa:

- Print and fill out form and submit personally by the sponsor.

- Submit the application along with supporting documents to the Passports Department. (DOWNLOAD application form)

- Pay appropriate fees (more details about fees below)

Requirements for applying visa for wife:

- Copy of personal ID or passport of the resident husband

- Letter from husband's employer citing profession and salary

Requirements for applying visa for other relatives (Father, mother, sister, children and in-laws):

- Valid passport copy of the visitor.

Hi. For Philippine expats, do I need to have the birth certificates authenticated (red ribbon) even if it's only for Visit Visa? It's for my 4-month old daughter. Is it possible to submit just the birth certificate without the red ribbon?I don't have the luxury of time, hope I could process though. Thanks

My wife went to do the medical for her RP. Problem is she is pregnant and her English is not that great. They charged her 100 QR at the medical commission but they didn't do any tests (no blood test, no x-ray obviously, no TB test, ect.). A lady there told her what to do next but she couldn't understand her. She asked another employee but she got shoo'd out the door because it was close to closing time. Anyone have any clue what they might have told her to do next?
