  1. sahir hussain on

    i am from a sales background,with 13 yrs of experience,Looking for a sales and marketing job opportunity in Qatar,kindly assist me in this.
    Would be highly obliged for the same.

  2. Sheik Mansoor on

    My Profession in KSA Iqama is Computer/Network Supervisor (مشرف شبكات الحاسب ). But the list shows only General Supervisor & Ship Supervisor. Will I eligible for Visa on Arrival to Qatar ?

  3. No, They only accept credit card. I tried it before but got denied as the immigration officer don’t accept any cash. They are not cashier.

  4. I’m not sure but I think all Nationals who possess a high level position in any GCC countries can enter Qatar without prior visa. What I also know is Pakistan is not allowed to enter in Kuwait even if they hold a CEO position or any high level resident status in any GCC countries. But of course Kuwait is different from Qatar. Take note also that their passport and their resident card ID or status is 6 months valid before expiration. That is very important to note!

  5. Only you are allowed to enter in Qatar as long as your passport and resident ID is valid for 6 months. Less than that is not allowed. With regards to your colleague, he is not allowed to enter as he is Site Supervisor, It should be Site Engineer or High level Project Engineer. Site Supervisor is more than above a Site Foreman. They are not that very strict to Philippines unlike other countries as long as you possess all the requirements they required and you also have working credit card as the immigration officer don’t accept any form of cash. Hope that helps.

  6. Secretary are not included on the high level position that allowed them to enter Qatar without prior visa. Sorry to say this.
