QATAR: Rejected Block Visa Amendment Applications May Not Be Resubmitted Within 20 Days
November 10, 2017
Effective immediately, the Ministry of Labour in Qatar has implemented a new rule, requiring employers whose block visa amendment application has been rejected to wait 20 days before resubmitting the application.
Companies wishing to hire foreign nationals in Qatar must first obtain a block visa approval from the Ministry of Labour which accurately reflects the number, gender, nationality and job title of the workers they wish to hire.
Companies in Qatar applying to amend their block visa should allow for a longer delay should the application be rejected.
