Process to convert Family visit visa to Family Residence visa

By nadeem1102

Hello All,

I have my wife here in Qatar on family visit visa and planning to apply for family residence visa. Will I need all the documents again which were submitted for visit visa application, or just need to go to the Medical commission for medical and tell them I need to convert visit to residence visa and they will charge accordingly. I belive 500 for conversion and 100 for medical. and later 500 for RP

You have to apply for residence visa with further more documents. I think that only Main office Al Gharaffa (building no 3) accepts the application. The best option is ; have the medical test and extend the visit visa for 5 more months, then apply for residence visa. sometimes it may take longer time even you have all the documents and requirements. best of luck

Mr Nadeem1102 in your no. 3 post. (3. Go to immigration office with the application form and all the required documents, garrafa office gate number-4. Submit all the documents. Better go between 6 am to 9 am or 3 pm to 4 pm else you wont get the token.) when you say all required documents, its include noc, salary certificate, tenancy contract, 6 months bank statement, etc. Need to complete all the documents again? Its that right?

Here's the complete process:

1. Go to Medical commission with the entry visa and get the medical done. The receipt will say "Visa Extension". You will be charged QAR 100

2. After 2 days check on medical commission URL. The result should say fit: http://www.sch.gov.qa/mcr/En/mcresults.jsp?CSRT=16143102073400656878 .

3. Go to immigration office with the application form and all the required documents, garrafa office gate number 4. Submit all the documents. Better go between 6 am to 9 am or 3 pm to 4 pm else you wont get the token.

4. After 4 days, check on MOI website for the status. If it says ready to print, then go to Immigration office garrafa again at gate 1 with the document submission receipt.

5. You will be charged QAR 200 for converting visit visa to residence visa and QAR 500 for getting visa without exiting Qatar. Take the paper visa

6. Again go to Medical commission and show the paper visa and tell them you need to do medical to convert to residence visa. No need to take your family with you as no medical checkup will be done again. You will be charged QAR 100 again and the receipt will say purpose as 'Residence / Work visa'. Go to counter 64 where the officer will update his system so that the medical data will be sent to finger print office.

7. Go to finger print office at Mesaimer with all your receipts and get the finger prints done. Ensure to collect the finger print receipt

8. After 4 days again go to Immigration office at Garrafa at gate number 2 with all the documents and passport size photograph. If you forgot to get the finger print receipt then you will be directed to fill an application form. There is a counter available in gate 2 where the person was very helpful in filling out the form in arabic and giving all instructions. Also, make sure to have a blood group report with you of your wife from any medical clinic/hospital in Qatar. You will be charged QAR 500 for one year RP. Again Eyes scan will be required hence make sure to take your wife along with you. Be at the office between 6 am to 9 am or 3 pm to 4 pm.

I had a lot of issues in getting all the above details. I hope this helps to others who are planning to convert their visit visa to residence permit.
