Hi Angelo,

thanks a lot for your reply. How about transportation there? Any idea how much would be an average cost of living for a couple there?

Also about household items and all if any idea? thanks in advance.

Angelo, this is for your reference:

"Hi palukuri! i'm an indian and have been here in Doha for 18 years. you dont need to search for a particular place where indians live....simply because indians are all over this country. and one thing you have to know is this is a very small place. you can roam around the whole of qatar in 1 day though now that would be a little hard because of the traffic. and for the PWA office, i think all the paper works will be done through your company n they wud giv u all the instructions. Family life here is great.... I did my schooling here and there are lots of indian schools. Apartments are getting expensive now but if u hunt u mite find some btwn 2500-3500. less than that is close to impossible now. "

I hope that will do. Are you able to figure out what i have written?

:)

Sorry, Palukuri, only noticed your query today.

Can't help you much anyway, but note that Doha usn't big (or organised) enough to have nationality-based districts so there aren't, so far as I know, any areas where middle class Indians (I'm noting your salary) live, partly because the housing market is so chaotic at the moment. Socially, Indians here are vary varied: main divisions being Muslim/Hindu/Christian, of course, but also Keralan and non-Keralan. If you want to network when you get here, try the Indian Cultural Centre and the Kerelan Association or some of the Christian congregations/Moslem societies. (I never see much about Hindu organisiations in the paper, though I know they exist.) The Indian schools generate a lot of social activities, too. Toastmasters are mostly Indian, and even the Qatar Natural History Group committee is about half Indian.

Sorry, don't know the PWA.

Mr. Nice Guy,

Thank you very much for your info. So just a letter from the company will do or should i go to any other goverment office/ministry to get it authenticated or so.. Also can you give me any areas where Indians do stay and also appreciate if you can tell me the PWA office location in Qatar. Is it in the Doha City or far from the City?

To leave Qatar, whether for a weekend or for good, you need an exit visa and for that you need a letter from your employer saying it's OK for you to go. It's simple in theory, though can be a problem if your employer's in a bad mood or fills in the letter incorrectly. However, it shouldn't cost you anything.

Housing: see the other threads under accomodation etc. At the moment it's very difficult and expensive and changing all the time.
