How to register and make use of Metrash2 on your mobile


Metrash2 is a free mobile application from the Qatar’s Ministry of Interior which enables expats and nationals to renew their residence permits, renew and replace driver’s licences, conduct vehicle ownership transfers, fill out visit visa applications and renew e-gate cards.

This service is very helpful when it comes to checking your traffic violations, paying the fines, reminder about expiry dates of Residence Permit, Driving Licence etc. This can also give complete official details of your own and your dependents at a single click.

There are 40+ services including :

  • Traffic Services 
  • Resident Permit Services
  • Visa Services
  • Exit Permit Services
  • E-Gate Services

Complete list of services is available here.

Metrash was originally introduced in 2006 as an electronic service for mobile users only where upon subscription, residents could receive SMS messages regarding Traffic violation, RP expiry, License expiry etc.

In the initial years the service was not very popular as the registration was complicated and needed to access the MOI self service kiosks. Recently the process has been simplified and you can easily do it in 5 minutes with your smart phone.
