As a business coming from overseas to set up in Qatar, you’ll no doubt understand the importance of bringing employees with you that you know and trust. These employees can provide valuable skills and expertise vital to the success of your new business in Qatar – but they will need the correct visa in order to stay and work in the country.
When bringing in international talent, the onus is on the Qatari business, organisation or government establishment to apply for the Business Visa. A standard Business Visa allows international visitors to work in Qatar for a short period of time. Valid for up to 30 days on a single entry-exit basis, this Business Visa can then be extended for up to two months, for a total of up to three months in the country. This is best for short-term business visitors, and usually.
As the Business Visa is intended to support foreign workers on a short term basis, it is important to ensure that any extensions are applied for in advance, if required, as penalties will apply for overstaying.
As your local partner, Fusion Middle East will support you in this regard, and will assist you in managing expiries and extensions to ensure you adhere to all local requirements.
